Grahams 40 YO Tawny Port with Leather Tube NV

This is the oldest blend of tawny Port that Graham’s produce. Only small quantities of this wine are made and sold and they’re held in very high esteem by tawny Port aficionados. Incredible concentration and complexity of aroma and flavour come through decades of ageing in the casks held at the Graham’s Lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia.

Grahams 40 YO Tawny Port with Leather Tube NV

FOUNDED in 1820 by W&J GRAHAM in Portugal’s Douro valley, GRAHAM’S has developed over
time an unmatched reputation as one of the greatest names in Port.
THE superb performance of GRAHAM’S Ports relies on the choice of the finest quality grapes,
coming primarily from five Quintas, amongst the best in the upper Douro valley: Quinta dos Malvedos,
Quinta do Tua, Quinta das Lages (in the Rio Torto) and two others, Quinta da Vila Velha and Quinta
do Vale de Malhadas, privately owned by a member of the Symington family. These Quintas, sitting in
the heart of the upper Douro valley, enjoy an ideal combination of a hot & dry micro-climate, coupled
with a unique schist soil that provide the best conditions for growing and optimal ripening. In a tradition
that lasts for generations, GRAHAM’S also buys grapes from selected farmers in the finest districts.
GRAHAM’S 40 YEAR OLD TAWNY
TIME-HONOURED skills, craftsmanship and dedication are handed down from generation to
generation at GRAHAM’S in the form of three unique arts – the art of blending, the art of cooperage
and the art of ageing – to produce an extraordinary selection of Tawny Ports.
A testament to time: GRAHAM’s “40 year Old” is a witness to immemorial tradition. Graham’s Master
Blender composes this blend from wines put to aside in the cellar by his great-grand-father, his grandfather, his father and his uncles. He also sets aside wines for future generations. For those who
appreciate the taste of time.
