Reviews and Ratings

So fine and elegant with lovely aromas of baking spice and creamed corn. Love the long honeyed finish, yet it's not heavy. Perfect for toasted almonds and creamy cheeses. MINE: Taylor Fladgate was founded in 1692 and is one of the most-respected family-owned port houses. This white port has been fully matured in wood and is ready to drink now and thus the golden honey tones in the glass. Finishes with vanilla spice. OTHER: Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: Priya: Outstanding value for a unique port. Very crisp and nicely acidic. So far from the red ports, lighter and bouncier. Smell is deceptive as you don't smell the honey, it's much sweeter than it smells but not cloying at all! 90pts. Alex: By I smells the honey! Amidst a delicious aroma sporting marzipan, beeswax and chamomile as well. Elegant palate, surprisingly fresh and long, with a honey and chamomile finish. Great balance and value. 89pts. OTHER: Sweet white Port, such as this, is popular in Portugal's cocktail scene. Typically served with tonic water and an orange or lemon wedge, variations include the addition of muddled mint or the substitution of tonic for soda and bitters. If you wish to enjoy on its own, you can expect a direct sweetness and a soft, creamy texture with vanilla and honey tones. Chill it well, and then...well...chill (Vintages Panel, updated). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
