Port Wine Graham’s LBV 2009 Tube 75cl
Elegant red fruit aromas and eucalyptus, combined with subtle notes of mint and rock rose.
GRAHAM’S 2009 Late Bottled Vintage has a deep almost opaque colour, with an intense dark red rim. ON THE NOSE, elegant aromas of red fruit and eucalyptus, combined with freshly picked mint and notes of the distinctive Douro Rockrose (Gum Cistus).
ON THE PALATE, rich red fruit flavours balanced by taut, peppery tannins. There is a fine backbone of schist minerality and balanced acidity, with a long and satisfying finish.
FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTION AND SERVING
Graham´s Late Bottled Vintage can be enjoyed anytime and pairs wonderfully with chocolate desserts and hard cheeses like mature Cheddar or even a goats cheese.
Total acidity: 4.40 g/l tartaric acid
THE VITICULTURAL YEAR
The 2009 Vintage will be remembered for its hot dry conditions (just 7mm of rain between July and September) and tiny yields, producing wines of great concentration, intensity and power.
