1969 Graham Single Tawny

Post by AHB » 22:55 Thu 26 Feb 2015

Caramel in colour but with a green tinge on the rim, 30% opaque. A huge nose of VA and almonds. Thickly textured on the palate, sweet and honeyed. On the mid-palate comes a mandarin acidity that adds a nice complexity. Great balance on the palate. A warm aftertaste and a finish that positively glows with acacia honey and lasts for so long before a slightly sticky finish. Great port. 94/100. Tasted 24-Feb-15.
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
