Grahams 10 Year Old Tawny Port is aged in seasoned oak pipes (534 litre casks) for an average of ten years and blended to a consistent marque each time it’s bottled.
W & J Graham’s was founded in Oporto, Portugal’s second city, in 1820 by the two brothers William and John Graham and for nearly two hundred years Grahams Ports have been made by just two families, the Grahams and the Symingtons – in 1970 the Grahams sold the company to the Symington Family (who also own Dow, Warre and Cockburn). The remain one of the most prestigious Port houses. The quality of Graham’s Port relies on the finest grapes, primarily sourced from five iconic quintas in the Douro Valley: Quinta dos Malvedos, Quinta do Tua, Quinta das Lages and two others, Quinta da Vila Velha and Quinta do Vale de Malhadas, which are privately owned by members of the Symington family.
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. Grahams aged tawnies show a characteristic nutty quality and delicious mature honeyed fruit, exquisitely mellowed by ageing in seasoned oak casks.
Grahams 10 Year Old Tawny Port is bottled ready to drink and does not require decanting. It will stay fresh for four to six weeks once opened.
Graham’s 10 Year Old has a deep tawny and polished copper colour. Complex aromas combined with hints of honey and figs. On the palate, rich mature fruit flavours, beautifully mellowed with a luscious and long finish.
Grahams Tawny Port is delicious when served slightly chilled and are sometimes drunk as an aperitif as well as after a meal. Try with desserts such as creme brulee, almond cake or apple tart.
