GRAHAMS PORT 10YR OLD
This sweet tawny port from Graham's is a blend of ports aged in old oak casks for an average of 10 years. This is where great tawny port starts as it is part of the reserve category of port. This classification includes 10, 20, 30 and over 40 year old designations.
These age indications allow port producers the freedom to fine tune their wines, which are aged in seasoned oak casks of between 600 to 640 litres in size. This controlled oxidative aging process allows the wines to develop slowly into nutty flavoured, complex tawny ports as the colour fade and esters and acetals develop in the wines.
Think of this as a great dessert wine or drink it in a more classic style as an accompaniment to an aged cheddar cheese board.
