NV Graham 20YO Tawny (Bottled 2012)

Post by AHB » 08:29 Fri 06 Sep 2013

Bottled 2012. Light orange colour, 20% opaque. Served very cold and so showing little on the nose. Rich mouthfeel on entry with candied orange peel and marzipan on the palate but also a lovely balancing acidity. The richness comes through on the aftertaste, full of the slight bitterness of Seville orange peel. This is a big step up from the 10 year old. 89/100. 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
