Graham’s 1970 Vintage Port

100 2009-30

This has to be one of the truly great ports. It is sensuous, voluptuous packed with black fruits all so nicely balanced by fresher red that lie beneath. The mid palate has ripe damson and bramble both intermingling with red cherry layers of flavour that give complexity. Although very rich the balancing freshness gives a lighter feel towards the back a wonderful elegance, flavours, fragrances that stay on and on and on.
