Description

The 1974 Single Harvest Tawny Port is made from the very finest wines from the Graham’s vineyards. Graham's holds one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask aged Port of any producer. They include a collection of rare Single Harvest Ports. These are Ports from a single year which age to full maturity in seasoned oak casks and display the year of harvest on the label.

VWP Tasting note:
The 1974 rare Single Harvest Tawny Port has been matured for over four decades in seasoned oak casks in the Graham's lodges in Oporto. It has a seductive tawny colour which fades to a broad amber rim with discreet olive highlights. The attractive nose is fine and delicate, with notes of vanilla, walnut and marzipan, hints of oak, black pepper and cinnamon. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, well balanced with a smooth texture and mellow spicy flavours. The finish is very long, with a crisp acidity. This exceptional Aged Tawny Port is ready to drink now. Score 95/100 TC VWP, Apr 21 from sample served at 14C.


Colheita Port Storage and Serving Advice:
Colheita Port should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle should remain in an upright position. If stored correctly, Colheita Ports will keep for decades in the bottle. Over time, it is natural that a little sediment will form at the bottom of a bottle of colheita Port wine. Once opened colheita Port should be stored in a fridge and should be consumed within 3 months. Colheita Ports do not require decanting and are best served at a temperature between 14 and 16°C.

Reviews

95/100 Wine Advocate (Mark Squires) Drink 2022-2060
The 1974 Single Harvest Tawny Port (that's called a "Colheita" traditionally, but some producers have decided to translate) is a field blend bottled in May 2022 with a bar-top cork and 132 grams of residual sugar. A terrific Colheita, this dribbles sweet fruit and sugar over the finish while seeming bright and elevated. It is so fresh and balanced, that it is just terrific. Then, it adds all the typical flavors, the caramels and chocolates. This is great.

95/100 James Suckling
A fresh and vivid single harvest colheita with orange peel, apple peel, Butter Brickle and hints of caramel. Medium body. Refined and beautiful. Sweet crunchy finish. Weightless yet very sweet. Ethereal. Drink now.

95/100 Wine Enthusiast (Roger Voss)
In the series of great single harvest Colheita Ports, this is at a perfect age. There is a fine treacle and spice character to the wine along with a touch of orange zest freshness. Drink this great Port now. Roger Voss

17.5/20 Jancis Robinson Drink 2020-2032
Very pale amber with a pale greenish rim. Light nose with hints of dried fruits and real delicacy. No exaggerated concentration. Real freshness – quite marked acidity in fact. Super-clean and with a texture that suggests this tawny port is caressing rather than assaulting the palate. Quite delicious. Long. I wonder when this was released? I assume quite recently (see my drink dates).

94/100 Wine Spectator (James Molesworth)
Toffee, toasted sesame seed, salted caramel, green tea and hazelnut notes emerge slowly and steadily as this airs in the glass, backed by racy, embedded acidity through the lengthy finish. Shows some latent power too. Drink now. 356 cases made, 7 cases imported.
