product Details

Graham's 1972 Single Harvest Tawny Port​

"Single Harvest Tawny Port" is quite possibly the shortest and most accurate description of Colheita ports.

Colheita port is similar to Vintage port in that it is produced from the crop of a single exceptional year.  However, while Vintage ports spend only a brief 2 years in large oak vats and the majority of their ageing in bottle, Colheita ports are matured exclusively in smaller oak barrels for as many years as the producer deems necessary.

This fine port is from grapes harvested in the beautiful Douro Valley in September and October 1972, vinified and left to mature in a single cask, #6, until bottling in 2016 following the personal selection by Head Winemaker, Charles Symington.

This bottle is in excellent condition: label & foil/wax seal intact; cork/closure secure, no leakage.
