2001 Taylor's Quinta de Terra Feita Vintage Port

In stock

Product Information

Quinta de Terra Feita is located on the west bank of the River Pinhão, the narrow tributary which winds north to south through a sinuous steep-sided valley before flowing into the Douro at the village of Pinhão. In the heart of the original 1756 demarcation, it has been recognised as a source of the very finest Ports since the origins of the Port trade and its steep terraced hillsides are ringed with well known properties. Like those of Vargellas, the wines of the beautiful old property of Terra Feita are an essential component of the Taylor Vintage Port blend. Whilst the wines of Vargellas, provide elegance and finesse with their wonderfully pure and complex fruit, the wines of Terra Feita, express a sensuous hedonism and earthiness.

Approachable when young, they will nevertheless mature well for many years if laid down. The wines of Terra Feita are remarkable for their pure, complex fruit and distinct scented quality. Many experts believe Taylor’s Single Quinta Vintage Ports to be better than other companies’ declared years, the name Taylor’s is more of an assurance than the year.

Tasting Notes

Opaque purple red with magenta highlights. This has the intense berry fruit nose typical of Terra Feita, full of blackberry, cassis and black cherry aromas with hints of plum and liquorice. Round and full on the palate with ripe, mouthfilling tannins and sumptuous jammy fruit flavours on the finish. A superb fruit driven vintage port, true to the tradition of this ancient Pinhão Valley estate.

How to Serve

Will mature well for many years although is currently showing well. Pair with blue cheese boards and walnuts.

Accolades

“This is a beautifully concentrated Port, the full flavour really coming through on a palate of ripe cherries and plums.” Roy Woodcock, Daily Mail, January 2014

"Although it is the oldest, this tastes the youngest of all three Single Quinta Vintage Ports.  It’s partly a reflection of Taylor’s firm, well-structured style. Lovely line and length with still firm, tight, well-focused, juicy black currant and berry fruit with a lick of esteva and bitter chocolate.  Powder fine iron filing, mineral tannins offer support and interest.  Impressive with plenty in the tank yet." Sarah Ahmed, The Wine Detective, December 2017
