2015 Graham Stone Terraces

Deep garnet in colour. Delivers a wonderful nose of eucalyptus and hot dust, just like a hot harvest day in the Douro — it even includes the faint smell of orange and lemon oil! Beautiful balance on the palate, an incredible elegance. The fruit is perfect and focused with a lovely balance. The ripe tannins only appear on the finish and aftertaste as a soft chocolate element. Very fine port. 24-May-17.
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
