GRAHAM’S 20 Year old Tawny Port

The story of two families across three centuries. For almost two hundred years W & J Graham’s has been an independent family business renowned for producing the finest Port wines.

 

Graham’s has always been a pioneer. Graham’s was one of the first Port companies to invest in its own vineyards in Portugal’s Douro Valley in 1890 and is now at the cutting edge of innovation in winemaking techniques. Today, five Symington cousins share responsibility for every aspect of the company and personally make the Graham’s wines. They too have been involved with Port and the Douro for many generations, with ancestry dating back to the mid-17th century. From the website

Graham’s 20 Years Old Tawny is the result of the Master Blender’s quest for the perfect balance between young and aged Port wines. This is a Port wine perfected over twenty years to delight those in pursuit of excellence.

On the nose

Ripe fruit like plums and raisins. There is something in the smell that always makes me smile. Especially this time of the year. Some orange peel like sweet gluhwein from the Xmas market.

The taste test

This is something very special. Sweet, complex.

Raisins, prunes, vanilla spice.
