2015 Graham Stone Terraces

Post by AHB » 22:11 Thu 04 Jan 2018

From the 2017 Berry Brothers Port Walk.

Purple and opaque appearance. An astonishing nose that is full of opulent fruit that is ripe, sweet and full of lavender. Balanced and poised entry bringing lovely fruit with a soft backbone of structured tannins. Mouthfilling yet rounded, this is a perfect balance between fruit and acidity that will provide for a long life. Long and fragrant on the finish, this is a fine example of the prettiness of the 2015 vintage. I was so overwhelmed by its prettiness that I completely forgot to rate it. Either that or I was keen and eager to go back to the Graham 1966 for a second glass before the evening was over... 23-Nov-17.
