Taylor's release a Tawny Port from 1863
Taylor's have released a single harvest tawny Port from 1863, the last great harvest before the spread of phylloxera in the Douro. Taylor's described its release as a response to continuing demand for rare wood-aged Ports.
Recent years have seen this category emerge as a major focus for Taylor's. Four years ago it launched Scion, a £2,500 bottle of Tawny Port from 1855, while last year the house boosted its stocks of aged Tawny with the acquisition of Wiese & Krohn. In January 2014 Taylor’s launched the first in its new series of 50-year-old single harvest, cask-aged Ports, releasing 2,000 bottles from 1964.
