First Estate Reserve Porto

Taylor Fladgate

First Estate Reserve Porto

Region: Portugal / Douro Valley Porto
Grapes: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Amarela

This Reserve Porto is made from selected grapes from the best vineyards of the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. Taylor Fladgate is an area leader in winemaking technology, as one of only three Porto producers to pioneer the development of piston fermenter techniques, called Port Toes, that extract significantly greater flavor and aroma than conventional pump-over fermentation. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. A vintage character ruby Porto blended from reserve wines selected for their intense depth of color and fruit, First Estate Reserve Porto is aged for four years in neutral wood vats before bottling.
