1969 Graham Single Tawny

Post by AHB » 08:23 Fri 06 Sep 2013

Bottled 2012. Also used as a component in the 40 year old tawny blend. 6 casks of this port have been bottled as the 1969 single harvest tawny.

Honey brown in colour, 10% opaque. Clover honey nose with a cutting acidity on entry, accompanied by elegant spun sugar and sweetened grapefruit that has a twist of marmalade. Another burst of acidity on the aftertaste, then a long finish with big burnt sugar and lime marmalade. 94/100. Pop 'n' pour. 4 Sep 2013.
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
