When the Symington family completed the purchase of this most famous of all Port Houses in 1970, Graham's became the jewel in their crown.
While most famous for their vintages, Graham's had also established the other Ports as the epitome of the craft. From foundation in 1820, generations of Graham's constantly improved in every way possible their vineyards, winemaking and blending - a legacy clearly continued by the remarkable Symington family (who also own Dow, Warre, Gould Campbell, Smith Woodhouse and Fonseca in Port and The Madeira Wine Co.).
Graham’s Fine Tawny Port is lighter in colour and texture than Ruby and also slightly drier. The young wine is matured in seasoned oak vats for an average of three years, which allows the wine to come into contact with the oxygen that freely permeates the wood of the barrels. This means that some of the rich, fruity style of a young Port remains but the Fine Tawny also begins to gain the lingering nut and caramel flavours of an Aged Tawny Port.
It is suitable for drinking on any occasion and should be served chilled, between 10 and 14º Celsius.
