1952 Graham Single Tawny

Post by AHB » 22:38 Tue 17 Jul 2012

Deep brown, mahogany. Cut apples and VA on the nose. Gentle flavours caress the tongue. Lovely acidity - masses of honey and golden syrup but fabulous lemon juice acidity gives terrific balance. Very big flavours but a wonderful freshness to the wine. Delicious aftertaste and finish. Lovely port, mouthfilling and complex. 94/100. 11-Jun-12. Decanted 10 hours.
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
