Thee bottle. At the beginning of the 18th century, bottles were hand blown and bulbous in shape. They could notbe laid on their sides and were therefore unsuitable for long term ageing. Instead, they were usedmainly to convey the wine from the wine merchant’s cask to the consumer’s table. Becausebottles were expensive, they were re-used and often displayed the crest or initials of their owner.As the 18th century progressed, bottles became taller and more cylindrical. The early bulbous‘onion’ shape gradually evolved into a more elongated, straight-sided bottle with a longer neck.The first stage in this evolution was the appearance of the ‘mallet’ shaped bottle which had become
well established in England by around 1730. Liketheir predecessors, these bottles were squat in
shape. Their sides were often tapered towards the shoulder rather than completely parallel. However,
by around 1750, the ‘mallet’ bottle had developed a more cylindrical form. This Limited Edition bottle
is inspired by the ‘mallet-cylinder’ bottle from that period, the immediate predecessor of today’s

Serve slightly chilled, between 12ºC to 16ºC.

The bottle should be kept upright, protected from light and at a cool and constant temperature.

For many, Taylor’s is the archetypal Port house and its wines the quintessential Ports. Established over three centuries ago in 1692, Taylor’s is one of the oldest of the founding Port houses. It is dedicated entirely to the production of Port wine and in particular to its finest styles.

This specific Port combines particularly well with flavours of almonds, berry fruit or dark chocolate. It can also be enjoyed as an accompaniment for rich, blue veined cheeses.
