1972 Graham Single Tawny

Post by AHB » 19:21 Sat 27 Feb 2016

Light brown in colour with a green hint on the rim; 20% opaque. Strong almond paste on the nose with a touch of VA almost hidden that adds to the complexity. A slight thickness to the texture, balanced and ethereal. At first full of coffee then a searing dose of highly flavoured acidity. A touch dry and acidic on the finish, reminiscent of a sercial madeira. Great lime and grapefruit bitter-sweet finish. 90/100. 24-Feb-16.
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
