Taylor’s Chip Dry White Port NV

Taylor’s Chip Dry Port, Extra Sec, Douro, Portugal, NV

This wine: a malvasia dominated blend, along with rabigato, esgana cão, viosinho and gouveio; produced using the same methods as for red port, at Atkinson Lodge/Cellar; bottle number 363479, natural cork stopper, 20% abv, widely available, ~£13 (03/17)

Consumer tasting note: faulty, lightstruck. This wine should, in my experience of earlier bottles, show a strong profile including stone fruits, in particular apricot.

WSET style tasting note
Appearance: clear and bright, medium intensity gold, showing tears.

Nose: faulty, medium (-) intensity, with aromas as they come, dominated by wet wool, with a very low-key edge of yellow peach.

Palate: off dry, medium acidity, fortified high, full body, medium (-) intensity, a moderate grip, with flavours of a touch of honey, almond oil, touch of yellow peach. Medium (-) length, with a moderate grip and a slight bitterness on the end.

Quality: faulty, lightstruck, I propose.

Drinking readiness/ageing potential: faulty.
