NV Graham 30YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 22:56 Mon 03 Apr 2017

From a 20cl miniature bottle designed for the on-trade. Lighter and paler in colour than the 20yo, 20% opaque. Gentle VA on the nose with lots of pear-drops. Slow entry, sweet and thick bringing slow development of flavour on the palate. Concentrated with good acidity that is dominated by the flavours of burnt sugar. Aniseed on the aftertaste and a fabulous length - but I preferred the 20yo. 89/100. Drunk 21-Feb-17.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
