Description

The 1990 Graham's Single Harvest was bottled to mark the 100th anniversary of the Lodge. Normally this bottling is only available to purchase by visitors at the lodge, but we have managed to obtain some large format bottles!

THE WINE
In 1890, Graham’s built an imposing new port ageing lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia and this 1990 Single Harvest release commemorates the lodge’s Centennial. Peter Symington, winemaker at the time, made a selection of the finest wines sourced from Quinta dos Malvedos and Quinta das Lages, which he earmarked for long-term ageing in seasoned oak casks for future release. Peter’s son, Charles, worked with his father closely, following the wines’ development in wood. On Peter’s retirement in 2009, Charles succeeded him as head winemaker and taster and having accompanied this wines’ ageing, he has now selected the finest casks that he has identified as showing particularly fine structure and
elegance, meriting their bottling in Graham’s Bicentenary year.

Tasting Note
The wine shows a golden orange core with copper-hued rims. Soft caramel aromas meld with floral honeysuckle scents and creamy vanilla notes. On the palate, bright apricot and orange flavours accentuate the port’s vitality and freshness, belying its 30 years wood-ageing. The wine’s sublime texture reflects its balance and finesse.
