This is a superlative, powerful, big-hearted Port, with rich, complex fruit. Beautifully harmonious and well balanced; this excellent Vintage has the potential to continue developing in bottle for many years ahead. The 1977 is considered one of the very finest Vintages of the second half of the 20th century. Graham’s 1977 is widely regarded as being second to none.

    Description

    Graham’s port house owes its roots to a Glasgow-based textile business that opened an office in the nearby city of Oporto in the 20th Century. In 1820 office managers William and John Graham were given 27 pipes of Port wine in settlement of a bad debt. This Port was shipped to the parent company in Glasgow where it proved to be incredibly popular. Urged on by the parent company, William and John acquired and shipped more and more port to Scotland and grew a reputation as port shippers of distinction the world over. Today, Graham’s is managed by the Symington family, again of Scottish descent.

    This is a superlative, powerful, big-hearted Port, with rich, complex fruit. Beautifully harmonious and well balanced; this excellent Vintage has the potential to continue developing in bottle for many years ahead. The 1977 is considered one of the very finest Vintages of the second half of the 20th century. Graham’s 1977 is widely regarded as being second to none.

    Graham is another great port house, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their tawnys are quite good rather than exceptional, but their vintage ports are truly sublime and sumptuous.
