GRAHAMS - LBV 2001Late Bottled Vintage Port
Graham's 2001 Late Bottled Vintage, like Vintage Port, is a wine of a single year but it is not a declared Vintage Port. Whereas Vintage Port spends only two years in casks and then matures in bottle, LBV is aged in casks and then bottled with a light filtration at between four and six years old. At the time of bottling it has completed its maturation and is ready for drinking without the need for decanting.
Graham's 2001 LBV has a rich deep colour. On the nose, seductive aromas of sweet blackberry fruit, combined with floral notes including mint and eucalyptus. Big and robust on the palate, with ripe tannins and excellent length.
