Graham Natura Reserve Port NV

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalGraham’s Natura is a Reserve Port produced from Symington's certified organic vineyards at Quinta das Lages in the Rio Torto Valley, and Vineyards in Vale da Vilarica in Portugal’s Upper Douro Valley. The vines sit at 150 and 350 meters above sea level in dry, windy conditions affording them natural solid defences against disease. The grapes are small, the yields are low, and the flavours significant from a traditional Douro mix of touriga nacional, touriga franca, tinta roriz, tinta barroca, and tinta amarela. The styling is Graham’s fresh, with floral notes followed by a rich, sweet, fruit-driven palate, and an elegance few ports can match. Candied cherries and chocolates with a savoury underbelly leave you wanting more after the first sip. Solid Value. Grab some for the fall and the holidays.Tasted: 02 June 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
