Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Porto
The English first fell in love with baking apples, following their introduction from Asia, and the first known written recipe for apple pie dates back to an English cookbook published in 1381. Since then, Apple Pie has been truly Americanized and flourished in its adopted nation to mean more than just pie. Today for National Apple Pie day, I have decided to pair my pie creation with an equally Anglocentric beverage even though not English; Port. I have selected a 20-Year-Old Tawny Port by Taylor Fladgate with more than 300 years of history in port production. Tawny port invokes many of the apple pie characteristics; dark spices, cinnamon, clove, caramel, and baked apples. Give it a try it’s easy as pie!
