Port is a fortified wine produced in the Douro, a valley in Portugal running from near the Spanish border in the north-east of the country to Porto, the coastal city which gives the wine its name.

Did you know?

Port became popular in England during the 1700s as the country was at war with France and needed a new source of wine

Until the 1960s, barrels of wine were transported from the vineyards to Porto on small, flat bottomed boats called rabelos

Taylor’s 1863 Single Harvest Port

£2,950.00

 

An incredible single harvest port, produced in 1863 and bottled after more than 150 years in oak. Presented in a bespoke Italian crystal decanter and maple burl veneer box, this is a real piece of history.

Product Description

What you see above is more than just a decanter of Port.

The Taylor’s 1863 Single Harvest Port is an incredible piece of history – one of only a handful of pre-Phylloxera wines remaining, in perfect condition.

1863 was a year that changed the world. Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg address and signed the Emancipation Proclamation, the first step to the abolition of slavery. In London the first underground train ran, the Football Association met for the first time, the International Red Cross was founded, and notable births included car manufacturers Henry Ford & Henry Royce, painter Edvard Munch, Pierre Coubertin (father of the modern Olympic movement) & Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

Taylor Fladgate & Yeatman was founded over three centuries ago in 1692 and has been family owned and run throughout its history. The most famous of all Port houses, Taylor’s is regarded as the benchmark for Vintage Port and its declared vintages attract the highest scores and auction prices. Taylor’s Ports are noted for their elegance and restrained power, their longevity and their distinctive scented character.

Taylor’s is currently bottling its two casks of Single Harvest 1863 into 1,600 crystal decanters and will be releasing the Port worldwide over the next couple of months.

We could go on and on about how wonderful this Port is like various wine merchants on the internet, but I think Taylor’s Managing Director, Andrew Bridge’s words below say it all.

“This remarkable Port is like a time capsule, offering a fascinating glimpse into a distant past…The 1863 has been in wood for over a century-and-a-half and is a piece of wine history. Thanks to the perfect ageing environment of the lodges in Oporto it is perfectly balanced and shows an extraordinary vitality.” Andrew Bridge

An authentic piece of wine history, the Taylor’s 1863 Single Harvest Port is delivered in a specially produced Italian Crystal decanter with an individually fitted glass stopper engraved and polished by hand in Scotland.

The decanter is presented in a superb luxury box finished in maple burl veneer. Each box contains a certificate individually signed by Taylor’s Managing Director, Adrian Bridge.

There were only two casks of wine remaining from this vintage, so the 1863 Taylor’s Single Harvest port truly is a very Limited Edition – a rare and exclusive collector’s item!

Due to the limited supplies, a total of 1600 have been made available worldwide and only 240 for the U.K.

Available from Viader Vintners for £2,950.00.
