Graham’s 10 Year Old Tawny NV
The 10 Year Old Tawny is a very fine Graham’s Aged Tawny – it left our palates feeling all tingly!
The grapes are handpicked. Fermentation takes place with natural yeast between 26–30ºC. Once the must reaches the desired degree of sweetness (usually within 48 hours), fortification takes place with the addition of grape spirit at 77% alcohol by volume. Matured for 10 years in seasoned oak casks, this is Graham’s Master Blender’s personal interpretation of a fine, old, wood-matured Port.
Graham’s 10 Year Old Tawny is for those who seek a rewarding experience from a well-aged Tawny Port. The younger style of aged Tawny Port preserves some of the grapes’ ripe fruit flavours and tannins, which are complemented by the added complexity achieved by a decade of ageing in oak.
Deep golden-amber colour. Complex nose with generous nutty aromas and hints of orange peel, cinnamon, raisins, honey and figs. Rich fruit and caramelised nut flavours emerge on the palate, beautifully mellowed with a lusciously long finish.
