notes from the producer:The story of two families across three centuries. For almost two hundred 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.
Graham’s first harvest under the ownership of the Symington family was extremely auspicious, with Graham’s 1970 Vintage Port being declared. The 1970 is thought by many to be one of the greatest wines of that century.
Nearly an hundred years after their ancestor AJ Symington left Graham’s to set up on his own as a Port producer, the family’s relationship with this Port house came full circle.
Besides the family’s other Port marques, Graham’s is the only remaining British Port company independently owned by a single family. This ensures that every aspect in the making of Graham’s Ports is controlled and cared for intimately.
Graham’s Fine Ruby is bottled young, after some two years aging in oak vats. This retains the assertiveness of the fruit: a recognisable hallmark of Graham's style.
Graham's Fine Ruby Port is full-bodied with youthful freshness and aromas luscious fruit. It is deeply coloured and intensely aromatic with ripe red and black fruit aromas. On the palate luscious black cherry flavours, with excellent balance and an intense finish.
Storage & Serving
Graham’s Fine Ruby pairs wonderfully with cheeses and chocolate based desserts. Serve slightly chilled in a large Port or white wine glass. It does not need to be decanted. It will stay fresh for two to three weeks once opened.
10 Year Old Tawny PortA TRIBUTE TO CRAFTSMANSHIP
Graham’s 10 Year Old Tawny epitomises the passion for excellence and precision that is at the heart of every one of our handmade Tawny Ports. After a decade of care and slow seasoned oak maturation this wine is a wonderful example of the complex nutty and mature fruit flavours of Tawny Port.
Time-honoured skills, craftsmanship and dedication are handed down from generation to generation in the form of three unique arts – the art of blending, the art of cooperage and the art of ageing – to produce our extraordinary selection of Tawny Ports. All of Graham’s Tawny Ports have their own individual characteristics, the complex flavours and aromas that pervade each of these unique wines have been developed through selecting only our top quality wines from Graham’s four spectacular Quinta’s in the Douro Valley to age in seasoned oak casks in our 1890 Lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia.
Graham’s 10 Year Old has a deep tawny and polished copper colour. Complex aromas combined with hints of honey and figs. On the palate, rich mature fruit flavours, beautifully mellowed with a luscious and long finish.
Storage & Serving
Pairs perfectly with creamy or fruity desserts that compliment, such as apple pie or almond cake. Serve chilled in a reasonably sized Port glass or white wine glass. It will stay fresh for four to six weeks once opened.
