Graham’s Aged Tawny Ports are made from wines of the very highest quality which, following careful selection, are blended and subsequently matured in seasoned casks for a number of years until their peak of maturity is attained. These are among the most demanding and challenging styles of port to produce, requiring great skill and years of experience from the winemaker. It is essential to strike the correct balance between the delicacy and elegance which results from prolonged cask-ageing and the rich fruit quality which lends these old tawnies their structure, freshness and longevity.
Graham’s Aged Tawny Ports show a characteristic ‘nutty’ quality and delicious mature honeyed fruit, exquisitely mellowed by ageing in seasoned oak casks. In warmer weather, try serving lightly chilled – this adds a new dimension of pleasure to these superb wines.
Golden amber with a pale green tinge at the rim which denotes great quality and class. Very complex on the nose with a powerful fragrance that belies its age. The palate is a gamut of flavours, ranging from delicate fruit and raisins to burnt toffee and chocolate. The persistent aftertaste is sheer pleasure. An excellent alternative to Vintage Port at less formal occasions. Will keep for some weeks after opening.
Graham’s 40 Years Old Tawny will surely make any lunch or dinner a memorable one. It is a fabulous accompaniment to dark chocolate, but can also be enjoyed on its own - it is an experience in itself.
