A charming miniature duo of two 5cl bottles of Taylor�s port, presented in a wooden gift box.

Contains 1 x 5cl of each of the following: (Select Reserve, LBV)

1 x Select Reserve 5cl

Blended from carefully selected young red wines produced in the Baixo Corgo and Cima Corgo areas of the upper Douro Valley, chosen for their depth of colour, intense fruit and full, firm palate. These Port wines are matured for about two years in oak vats, where they soften and develop without losing their fresh, intense fruity character and their deep ruby colour. Taylor�s Select Reserve is bottled for immediate drinking. An excellent accompaniment for rich cheeses, dried fruit, and desserts made of chocolate or black fruit.

1 x LBV 5cl

Deep ruby red colour, black morello cherry on the nose, great vibrancy and wonderful freshness of fruit. On the palate, cassis, plums and blackberry combine harmoniously with the well-integrated and tightly knit tannins. Long elegant finish. Taylor�s LBV is the perfect finish to any meal. It does not need to be decanted and should be served in a generously proportioned wine glass so that its rich fruity nose can be enjoyed to the full. Excellent with fully flavoured cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.

Country Of Origin: Portugal
Probably the best known of all Port houses, the firm known today as Taylor�s was founded by Job Bearsley who was a general trader. It was Job�s son Peter who moved the company to Oporto in 1709 and they were the first English family to purchase property in the Douro in 1744. In 1816 Joseph Taylor joined the firm and it was soon trading under his name, 1836 saw the arrival of John Fladgate and Morgan Yeatman. Descendants of these three families have run the firm ever since, and it remains committed to staying independently owned.
