Graham’s Late Bottled Vintage 2015
Charles Symington, Graham’s head winemaker, made this entry in his 2015 vintage logbook: "Patience, playing the waiting game, were key during the 2015 harvest in the Douro. The confidence and flexibility to revise our picking schedule on an almost daily basis ensured that each grape variety delivered its full potential. Fully ripened berries with balanced maturations were the reward for correctly reading the signs in our vineyards."
Deep red-black colour. Bright aromas of blackberries and liquorice brim from the glass, with background notes of red roses and mint. Dried fruits, such as raisins and prunes, complement the chocolate and dark fruit flavours in the mouth. The palate is full and compact with a plummy texture that is balanced by a lively freshness and subtle spice element.
