Taylor’s holds one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask aged Port of any producer.   They include a collection of rare Single Harvest Ports.  These are Ports from a single year which age to full maturity in seasoned oak casks and display the year of harvest on the label.

Taylor’s has decided to make a limited release, each year, of a Single Harvest Port made 50 years previously.

The third in the series is the 1966 Single Harvest.

Taylor’s Managing Director, Adrian Bridge, commented:   "A 50th birthday or anniversary is a landmark occasion.  Taylor’s Single Harvest Ports offer a unique opportunity to celebrate with an extraordinary 50 year old wine in perfect condition.”

The Taylor’s Single Harvest Port is presented in the classic frosted bottle associated with Taylor’s celebrated range of Aged Tawny Ports and will be presented in a high quality wooden box.

This Port might have been made in the year England won the World Cup but it's still very much alive, unlike the country's chances of winning...
