Late Bottled Vintage
Graham’s Late Bottled Vintage Port (LBV) is a superb wine, selected from the finest production of what was a spectacular year. Whereas Vintage Port spends two years in casks and then matures in bottle, LBV is matured in seasoned oak and then bottled at between four and six years of age; hence the term, ‘late bottled’. Its ageing process encourages the wine’s development, and as such, at the time of bottling it is ready to drink without the need for decanting.
Charles Symington, Graham’s head winemaker, the company’s two tasters, and the viticulture manager Pedro L. Costa personally select each barrel of LBV before bottling this superb 2012 LBV.
