The Oddbins Take

We’re going to put our neck on the line here and say that we have a favourite talk show host. That host is Graham Norton. Sorry Jonathan and Alan, but Graham’s the man for Oddbins. Why? Because he is very natural and easy with his guests, accompanying them on whatever flights of fancy they go on. Warm-natured and dry yet charmingly nutty, (now you’ll see where we’re going with this…), he is much like his 10 Year Old Portuguese Tawny Port namesake.

Joanna Simon on JoannaSimon.com, 24/12/15: "This is a bottle to pick up if you’re still rushing around buying last-minute presents, or if you want a port for cheese that doesn’t need decanting, or if you want something to serve with mince pies, chocolate, or dried fruit and nuts. In a stylish, clear glass, dumpy bottle to show off its colour, it’s a rich, luscious Tawny with flavours of dried and fresh figs, nuts, toffee and spices. To get the full effect, remember that Tawny port should be served lightly chilled."

Deep, tawny/ochre in colour, it has complex nutty aromas, overlaid with warm flavours of honey and figs.

Grahams have always been pioneers. They were one of the first Port Houses to invest in its own vineyards in Portugal’s Douro Valley, in 1890, and they are now at the cutting edge of innovation in winemaking techniques. Today, five Symington cousins share responsibility for every aspect of the company and personally make the wines. They too have been involved with Port and the Douro for many generations, with ancestry dating back to the mid-17th century.

Port – the rich, sweet, fortified wine that is enjoyed the world over – owes its existence to one monk, nearly forgotten by history, in the remote Douro Valley. It is alleged that two wine merchants in the seventeenth century exploring Portugal’s Douro valley discovered the Abbot of a Lamego monastery adding grape spirit to his wine early on in its fermentation to preserve its sweetness. This was the beginning of Port.

Grahams 10 Year Old Tawny Port is a product of skilled craftsmanship. It epitomizes the passion for excellence and precision that is at the heart of every one of Grahams’ handmade Tawny Ports. This Port is the result of a decade of careful oak-maturation and is a wonderful example of how complex Tawny Port can be.

Deep, tawny/ochre in colour, it has complex nutty aromas, overlaid with warm flavours of honey and figs. The palate has rich, mature fruit flavours and is beautifully mellowed, with a long, luscious finish. It’s a perfect match with sweet desserts, such as apple pie with cinnamon or almond cake and should be served slightly chilled.
