GRAHAMS - 1983Vintage Port
Fullish colour. Rich, raw, backward nose. But there is a lot of class and depth and complexity here.
Rich, meaty, multi-dimensional flavours. Slightly cooked plums, but in a 1982 claret sense. Very fine. Very good balance. Long. Subtle finish. Excellent!
This Vintage is beginning to show some of the wonderful characteristics of bottle matured wine. It can be drunk now but will repay a few more years in your cellar.
The fruit that has hitherto been rather subdued is now opening up very nicely. A great treat.
Some shippers opted for 1982 however it would seem that 1983 has turned out to be the better wine.
Stylish, big with good balance of fruit and tannin.
