During their long maturing period in oak casks, Old Tawnies undergo subtle colour changes. The deep red hue which characterises a Port’s purple infancy gradually gives way to a paler red. It then becomes amber – paler still – and eventually takes on a delicate brown, orange tinted colour.

GRAPE VARIETIES The grapes used in the production of Graham’s 20 Years Old were a blend of traditional Portuguese varieties from the Douro Valley, such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cão. VINIFICATION Graham’s 20 Years Old was fermented with natural yeast at between 24-28ºC. Once the must had fermented to the desired degree of sweetness (usually within 48 hours), fortification took place with grape brandy at 77% v/v (generally 80% must / 20% brandy). AGEING Graham’s 20 Years Old was aged in oak casks at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. TASTING NOTES Light amber colour, showing mature raisiny fruit aromas with hints of honey. The palate is rich and nutty, with a wonderful balance, a clean crisp finish and a soft lingering aftertaste.. SERVING TIPS - Does not need decanting. - The wine is ready to drink when bottled, but will maintain its quality with bottle age. - Serve at room temperature 18ºc, or slightly chilled in hot weather. - Superb with cheese, nuts or dried fruit after a meal. - Excellent with a cigar. “Superb Graham’s 20 Years Old. In fact sheer perfection. Very sweet, full, smooth harmonious”. Michael Broadbent.
