Taylor's Port, 1971


Colheita Single Harvest Port
Includes Taylor's gift box
Special Offer | Was £195 | Now £175

Taylor’s has an extensive and enviable library of very old Ports and each year they release a 50 year old Single Harvest Port which represents the cream of their aged reserves.

Often referred to as Colheitas, these single harvest Tawny ports are a far cry from vintage port with very slow and gentle ageing in oak casks creating ports of extreme aromatic complexity with delightfully mellow structure. And the 1970 Port vintage was of one outstanding quality - ideal growing conditions produced what is now a classic vintage - universally declared by all the major port houses.

Every year Taylor’s dip into their extensive cask-aged reserves to unveil an immense 50-year-old Port.

Palmer Port, 1971

Colheita (Single Harvest) Port

Release of just 12 bottles of the Palmer 1971 Colheita Port for the UK.
Port from 1971 is extremely rare. We became aware of a small quantity that was acquired by Fernando van Zeller in early 2021 from a family owned vineyard. Recently certified by the IVDP, it is one of the few tawny ports from 1971 in existence.

Tasting Notes:
This is a Port matured in cask for five decades. Medium Tawny colour with aromatic notes of coffee, molasses, figs and cigar box. An elegant light-bodied port with integrated acidity and a subtle texture. Long, smooth finish.
