Graham’s 30 Year-Old Tawny Port, Portugal

Country: Portugal

Colour / Style: Sweet

Alternative selection for: Episode 10

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

This is a ‘summer’ drink. Chilled and served in the evening before or after supper. That’s what Port producers do in overlooking the Douro after a hard, hot day in the vineyards. It brings a freshness to the dried fruits, wood spice and lightly honeyed style of the wine. This is an average of 30 years-old blending some younger, fruitier wines with older, spicier and more venerable barrels.
