1983 Graham

Post by AHB » 21:00 Sun 29 Oct 2017

Drunk at the Graham's Lodge at the end of a tour of the new visitors centre. Ex-cellars.

Mature red colour with an attractive appearance; not quite opaque at the centre. Soft caramel on the nose, with sweet and soft red fruit. Smooth onto the palate with lovely fruit; good clean acidity and soft tannins give a pleasing feel in the mouth. Light and spritely but with a texture that is a little watery. The aftertaste is terrific, big and full of fruit and leads to a wonderful finish of dried strawberries that lasts a long time in the mouth. 93/100. 20-Jun-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
