Fine deep tawny colour, with complex nutty aromas combined with hints of honey and figs.
On the palate, rich mature fruit flavours, beautifully mellowed and a luscious long finish.
Graham's 10 Years Old is made from wines of the very highest quality which, following careful selection, are matured in seasoned oak casks of 534 litres until their peak of maturity is reached.
These are among the most demanding and challenging styles of Port to produce requiring great skill and years of experience from the winemaker and blender. It is essential to strike the correct balance between the delicacy and elegance which results from prolonged cask ageing while retaining the fruit quality which lends this old Tawny its structure and longevity.
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 recently been voted the World's Most Admired Port brand by Drinks International.
The grapes that are used to make Port must be grown in the mountainous Upper Douro region of Northern Portugal, the world's first officially demarcated wine region in 1756. The Douro is perhaps the most challenging wine-growing region on earth. Its mountainous terrain and steep, winding valleys create a kaleidoscope of microclimates, each producing unique wines.
Aged Tawny Port carries an indication of age on the label. This relates to the average number of years spent maturing in barrels before they are finally bottled.
Tasting note: Rich, mature fruit flavours; beautifully mellowed; with a luscious, long finish. Perfect match with sweet desserts, such as apple pie with cinnamon or almond cake.
Aged Tawny Port should be served slightly chilled.
