Key Information

Other Information

  • ABV20%

Graham's Crusted is a blend of excellent young ports from two or three harvests, bottled without any fining or filtration in 2001. The legislation only allows the bottling date to feature on the label. This Port was then aged in bottle in the Graham's cellars in Portugal for three years before being offered for sale. Crusted Port derives its name from the fact, that exactly like Vintage Port it will throw a "crust" or natural deposit with bottle age. As with Vintage Port the wine should be stored lying down and will require decanting prior to serving. Stand the bottle upright about one hour before opening so as to allow the deposit to settle prior to decanting. Crusted Port, although excellent for drinking at the time of release (i.e. 3 years after bottling), will also age gracefully for several years in bottle. The bottle ageing allows this wine to develop the magnificent bouquet and flavour which is unique to bottle matured wines. This wine offers an excellent value alternative to Vintage Port.

Tasting Notes:

Graham's Crusted Port Bottled 2001 has a fine deep ruby colour.

On the nose showing concentrated aromas of ripe blackberries, dark chocolate and a touch of cherries. On the palate full bodied and packed with flavours of black fruits and hints of spices. With a long and lingering finish.

Food pairing suggestion and serving Graham's Crusted can be enjoyed anytime and pairs wonderfully with chocolate desserts, blue or hard cheeses (like Roquefort and mature Cheddar) or even with fruit desserts like cheesecake or cherry pie.
