Description

Red port can be made from many types of grapes (castas), but the main ones are Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cão, Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), Touriga Francesa, and Touriga Nacional.

Thus each genuine port style has a corresponding, often very different, style that can be found in wines made outside Portugal. Graham's 30 Years Old is made from wines of the very highest quality which, following careful selection, are matured in seasoned oak casks of until their peak of maturity is reached. Not every year is declared a vintage in the Douro, only those when conditions are favourable to particularly flavourful crops of grapes.

This combined with the skill of the Master Blender has resulted in Grahams mastering the art of making 30 Years Old Tawny Ports. Developing skills, craftsmanship and dedication from generation to generation in the form of three unique arts.

The decision to declare a vintage is made by each individual port house, and is based on several factors, most notably the weather and the ability of the marketplace to absorb a new vintage. Port also known as Port wine, Vinho do Porto, Porto, or Porto wine is a sweet, fortified wine from the Douro Valley in the northern part of Portugal; it takes its name from the city of Oporto, the centre of port export and trading. Only decades of tasting and careful nurturing will allow a wine of this delicacy and quality to emerge. The wine's contact with the wood of the cask works hand-in-hand with time to create one of life's greatest wines. Graham’s 30 Year Old Tawny Port is an amber-coloured fortified port wine with the characteristic aromas of long aging, like nuts and ripe fruits.In 2005, the IVDP prohibited the use of the term ""Vintage Character"" replacing it with the term ""Reserve. Unfiltered or ""Traditional"" LBV ports require decanting like vintage ports do, and may improve in the bottle. Owned by the Symington’s since 1970, Graham’s is the only remaining British Port company independently owned by a single family. 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. It is your responsibility to keep the wines safe and in their original condition until collection is made.

Excellent - please note that 30 years is an average age and so the vintage does not appear on the bottle . While Porto produced in Portugal is strictly regulated by the Instituto do Vinho do Porto, many wines in the U. One of the unique winemaking techniques followed here is the addition of the grape spirit during the fermentation of the grapes to add to the sweetness and longevity of the wines.

To age and blend old wines like these is an extremely challenging exercise requiring great skill and years of experience. The Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e Porto (IVDP or Port and Douro Wine Institute) regulates the Port industry in Portugal. There may be extra charges for some postcodes including but not limited to Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands, and British overseas territories. 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. Aged tawny port is a blend of several vintages, with the average years ""in wood"" stated on the label: 10, 15, 20, and 30 years are common.

The wines contact with the wood of the casks works hand-in-hand with time to create one of lifes greatest pleasures. Yalumba has released a 50 year old tawny and Hardy's Whiskers Blake, Rosemount's Old Benson and Galway Pipe are also made in the traditional manner. Light, orange-tinted amber colour, magnificent perfumed nose of great class showing an array of dried fruits.Using the extensive knowledge of the Douro Valley gained over the previous seventy years, the Grahams chose an ideal place to plant a vineyard; an excellent south-facing aspect, fine soil composition, good gradients that facilitate drainage and a perfectly sited ridge on which they built one of the finest of all the DouroÂ's great estate houses. Port"" wines produced outside of Portugal may be labelled with a vintage date, but rarely possess the quality and proven age-ability of true vintage port. During the 17th century, a couple of wine merchants noticed that the people in the Lamego monastery in the Douro Valley added grape spirit in the initial stages of fermentation to make the wines sweet and authentic. The 30 Year Old wines are very serious indeed, showing immense structure and a range of dried fruit and nut flavours. Graham’s five vineyards are located in the Douro valley and all have the maximum ‘A’ grade classification.
