Product Information

Perfect Christening Gift.

3x75cl wooden case of Taylors, Fonseca & Croft Vintage 2007 with Christening Certificate

Made only in the very finest years – known as ‘declared’ vintages – Vintage Ports are blended from the best produce of the Taylors, Fonseca and Croft own estates. The 2007 growing season was preceded by a wet winter that replenished water reserves after four hot, dry years. The humid conditions continued into spring and early summer with lower than average temperatures combined with periods of rain.

The first two weeks of September saw constant daily temperatures of between 35ºC and 38ºC. These warm and dry conditions brought the crop to perfect maturity, advancing the production of sugar and phenolics while retaining the excellent natural acidity resulting from the relatively cool summer. As a result the harvest produced perfectly balanced musts which have produced stylish and elegant Vintage Port, full of vitality, with a superb fresh concentrated
