Graham’s Vintage Port 2000

Fortified Port Style from Portugal
Review Date : 21-May-2013
Impenetrable black-red colour, full and dense. The bouquet is packed with ripe aromas of black berry fruit and black plums with liquorice and black pepper, raisins and savoury tar and earth nuances. This has the freshness of primary fruit still, with just the beginnings of development appearing. Sweet to taste, very rich, ripe and succulent flavours of blackberries, cassis, raisins and plums fill the palate. The extraction is serious with powerful, but very fine-grained tannins underlining the fruit. The grip has a slight drying effect but is balanced by alcohol spirit and power that sweetens the mouthfeel. The flavours are carried to a very long, dry finish. This is a Vintage Port of finesse and elegance, with great poise between dry textures and sweet richness. Just showing signs of development, it will keep 20-30 years. Fruit principally from Quinta dos Malvedos, Quinta dos Lages, Quinta da Vila Velha and Quinta de Vale de Malhadas, 20% alc. 19.0/20 May 2013 RRP $169.95
