Time-honoured skills, craftsmanship and dedication are handed down from generation to generation at Graham’s in the form of three unique arts – the art of blending, the art of cooperage and the art of ageing – to produce an extraordinary selection of Tawny Ports.
The perfect balance: Graham’s 20 Year Old is the Master Blender’s quest for perfection, capturing the perfect balance between young and aged Port wines. A Port wine perfected for more than twenty year, to delight those in the quest for excellence.
Founded in 1820 by William and John Graham in Portugal’s Douro Valley, for nearly two centuries Graham’s has cultivated its reputation as one of the greatest names in Port. The quality of Graham’s Port relies on the finest grapes 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 a member of the Symington family.
Located in the heart of the Upper Douro Valley, all of these quintas enjoy the hot and dry microclimate and unique schist soil only found in this region. Together these two factors provide perfect conditions for both the growth and optimum ripening of the grapes.
Graham’s 20 Year Old Tawny has an amber, golden tawny colour.
On the nose, it shows an excellent bouquet with a characteristic ‘nutty’ character and delicious mature fruit with hints of orange peel, exquisitely mellowed by careful ageing.
On the palate, it is rich, softly sweet and smooth, perfectly balanced, with a long and elegant finish.
