Crusted Port (Bottled in 2002)
Bottle size: 75cl
* excludes delivery (free standard UK delivery on orders over £100)
Excellent deep ruby colour, with layer upon layer of rich concentrated red and black fruit aromas. On the palate packed with fruit flavours and with floral hints of eucalyptus and mint. Well balanced with a long and lingering finish.
Graham's Crusted is a blend of carefully selected young ports from two or three vintage years, bottled without any fining or filtration in the year indicated on the label. After many years of bottle ageing in ideal conditions in Graham's cellars in Oporto, it has developed the magnificent bouquet and flavour unique to bottle matured wines.
Crusted Port derives its name from the fact that, exactly like Vintage Port, it will throw a 'crust' or natural deposit as it matures in bottle. It will therefore require a simple decanting prior to serving. Stand the bottle upright a few hours before opening so as to allow the deposit to settle and carefully pour the wine into large clean wine glasses.
Excellent - The date on the label is the date of bottling, not the harvest date, because Crusted Port is a blend of excellent wines from two or three very good harvests.
