Taylor Fladgate declares 2016 Vintage Port

Taylor Fladgate has announced that it will release a classic Vintage Port from the 2016 harvest. According to house custom, the declaration is made on 23rd April, 2018. Comments on the Taylor Fladgate 2016 Vintage Port are as follows:

Adrian Bridge, Managing Director
“The keynotes of the 2016 vintage are purity, refinement and structure. The Taylor Fladgate 2016 is characteristically elegant and poised and underpinned by firm, superbly integrated tannins of exceptional quality. Yields at the 2016 harvest were relatively low and the wine is likely to be tightly allocated.”

David Guimaraens, Head Wine Maker
Commenting on the viticultural year: “Two factors stand out in 2016. The spring was extremely wet meaning that the vines had plenty of water throughout the summer. Secondly, the ripening season started relatively late and lasted well into September. This meant that the crop was very evenly ripened and all elements were in perfect balance at the time of the harvest. Picking started later than usual, particular in the Pinhão Valley where the Taylor Fladgate properties only began their harvests in the last week of September.” Commenting on the wine: “The hallmark of the Taylor Fladgate 2016 is the very fine fruit quality and the magnificent tannins supported by a lively acidity.”
