Taylor's "Quinta De Vargellas" 1988 Vintage Port 12x75cl

Single-estate Vintage Port from the renowned Taylor's vineyards at Quinta De Vargellas. 1988 vintage, bottled in 1990.

Taylor’s is one of the largest, most famous and oldest of the founding Port houses with over three centuries of family tradition that began with the foundation of Taylor Fladgate & Yeatman in 1692. It is dedicated entirely to the production of Port wine. 

Quinta de Vargellas is outstanding among the wine estates of the Douro and has been prized as a source of the finest Ports since the 1820s. Today it ranks among the great vineyards of the world. In years when a Taylor’s Vintage  is not declared, the decision may be taken to bottle a Single Quinta Vintage Port. This is made entirely from grapes grown on the Vargellas property and bears the name of the estate on the label.

These bottles have a splash of white paint or chalk on the glass. This white mark is also called a 'splash mark' and is added to the uppermost side of the bottle and shows which way up it was cellared.

These 12 bottles are presented in their original wooden case.

Please note that there shall be a shipping charge for 12 bottles applied to this lot.
