Graham's Port, 1972

Single Harvest Colheita Port

The 1972 Single Harvest Tawny Port is made from the very finest wines from the Graham’s vineyards, and is the result of the unique terroir of the Douro Valley and subsequent maturation in Vila Nova de Gaia, that has distinguished Graham’s for almost two centuries.

The 1972 Colheita shows a vivid, rich amber colour, with a suggestion of a green tinge on the rim. On the nose an explosion of multiple aromas, a combination of caramel, nuts, hints of vanilla and cigar box. Massively concentrated in the mouth, these wines have a complex palate revealing honeycomb, exotic spices and crystallised orange peel flavours.
