Taylors LBV Port 5cl Miniature Taylors Late Bottle Vintage (LBV) was first feared it would never come to pass. Due to the winter preceding the harvest being extremely cold and dry, leaving the reserves for water severely depleted after an already dry and hot year. This, in turn, meant that the growing season started later than usual, mainly down to the cold weather and shortage of water. The grapes produced in the whole of the growing season were marked by lower vigor and small berry size, but it also meant that if the harvest was complete, the grapes could be more flavorsome than usual. Although the rainfall was short and limited, in the heat and drought-like conditions, the ripening process continued as normal, although at a slower pace than usual.
