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 tawnies show a characteristic ‘nutty’ quality and delicious mature honeyed fruit, exquisitely mellowed by ageing in seasoned oak casks. In warmer weather, try serving Graham’s Aged Tawnies lightly chilled – this adds a new dimension of pleasure to these superb wines. Graham’s Aged Tawny Ports have been awarded an impressive total of 7 gold medals at the International Wine Challenge (more than any other Port category), among them a ‘Tawny Port Trophy’ for the Graham’s 30 Years of Age.
Graham’s 40 Years of Age: 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 and opulence that belies its age. The palate is a gamut of flavours, ranging from delicate apricot fruit and raisins to creamy toffee and praline. The full, persistent aftertaste is sheer pleasure. A very rare wine available in restricted quantity.
