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.
History of Graham’s
The story of two families across three centuries. For almost 200 years W & J Graham’s has been an independent family business renowned for producing the finest Port wines.
Graham’s has always been a pioneer. Graham’s was one of the first Port companies to invest in its own vineyards in Portugal’s Douro Valley in 1890 and is now at the cutting edge of innovation in winemaking techniques. Today, five Symington cousins share responsibility for every aspect of the company and personally make the Graham’s wines. They too have been involved with Port and the Douro for many generations, with ancestry dating back to the mid-17th century.
