Graham's Port, 1974

50 Year Old Tawny Port
New Release for delivery end July 2024

Description and Reviews:
The Graham’s 50 Year Old Tawny Port will be released in the UK in June 2024. Only 240 75cl bottles and 6 450cl bottles will be released. We are delighted to be one of the few selected to sell these treasured wines.

The Grahams 50 year old Tawny has a captivating deep orange-brown hue, framed by a dark walnut base and a pale green rim. It has complex aromas with layers of orange blossom, fruitcake and butterscotch, creating a balanced and concentrated sensory experience. The mouthfeel is substantial, rich and creamy with vibrant acidity, enchanting notes of seasoned wood, nutmeg, and cinnamon, and a lingering finish that endures on the palate.

Charles Symington, Graham’s Head Winemaker and Master Blender, selected two main components for the 50 Year Old blend. The first is a wine from 1969 known as 'CAS Reserve', which was originally set aside by Peter Symington to mark Charles’ birth, giving the wine his initials. The second is comprised of wines from 1970 and 1973, which were blended in 1982. Since being set aside for long-term ageing, these wines have lost over 50% to evaporation, resulting in astonishing concentration.

The presentation of the Aged Tawny Collection is inspired by the age and scarcity of each of the 40 and 50 Year Old Tawny Ports. The illustrations, designed by Portuguese illustrator, Mariana Rodrigues, reflect some of the rarer flora and fauna found in the Douro Valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001. Each wine’s wooden box, carefully lined with wallpaper and panelling on the back, helps to create a familiar sense of home and is reminiscent of British interior design dating back to the 16th century.


Golden amber with a pale green tinge at the rim which denotes great quality and class. Very complex on the nose with a powerful fragrance that belies its age. The palate is a gamut of flavours, ranging from delicate fruit and raisins to burnt toffee and chocolate. The persistent after-taste is sheer pleasure. An excellent alternative to Vintage Port at less formal occasions. Will keep for some weeks after opening.
