Taylor 1975

Post by ajfeather » 21:26 Fri 06 May 2011

Just drinking an odd bottle of T75 I picked up cheaply whilst watching Monty discussing all things plant related (apologies if your outside the UK you may have no idea what I am talking about). It was an toss up between this and something destined for "Other Wines" a CWG J P Bredell South African number that I am interested to wait some more years to see what it offers. I wonder why I hang on to the South African and figure I am attached to fond memories of that part of the planet, the fair cape is fair indeed and I suspect when Bredell get's it right it might be a revelation.

Back to the T75, inline with prior comments, light red, slightly firey but not that firey to my pallate, very sweet on the finish with no depth of fruit. Lacking...yes...but not a disaster but not something I will remember, and at the price I paid its just fine.

I've just noticed the reference to Bredell's wines. Drop me a PM if you'd like to know more about his ports.
