The Fladgate Partnership Announces: Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage 2015 Port

Posted on July 21, 2020

NEW YORK– July 21, 2020 – The Fladgate Partnership is excited to announce the release of Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage 2015 Port in the same year they celebrate 50 years of crafting exceptional Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) Port wine. Taylor Fladgate has been pioneering LBV Port, a category that was developed to satisfy the demand for a high-quality, ready-to-drink alternative to Vintage Port for everyday consumption, since 1970. Taylor Fladgate LBV 2015 Port will be available to for the U.S. wine lover in September 2020.

“Since it started trading in 1692, Taylor Fladgate has always been a specialist in producing and selling premium Port wine, and the growing demand for the LBV category has encouraged us to make significant investments in innovative technologies and methods both in viticulture and winemaking,” says Adrian Bridge, CEO of The Fladgate Partnership, the parent company of Taylor Fladgate.

The wines used to blend Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage 2015 were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full-bodied red Ports, produced at the 2015 harvest, from grapes grown on Taylor Fladgate’s own vineyards, and on other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas.

20% ABV, 750ml, $24.99 SRP

Late Bottled Vintage is the perfect end to any meal; rich and powerful, it has elegant, expressive, and floral aromas, with principal notes of red and black fruits – black cherry dominating. On the palate, it has flavors of dark chocolate and raspberries. It’s elegant with well-integrated tannins and the nose is beautifully delineated with very fine, focused fruit. This is the Taylor Fladgate style: a Port that is always well balanced and sophisticated.
