Graham’s is pleased to announce the decision to declare a 2017 Vintage Port,
"Mostly Touriga Nacional from traditional stone-walled terraces at Quinta dos Malvedos, Graham’s flagship estate. The vineyards mostly face north and east. inky blue-black colour; closed, intense with a hint of liquorice and dark chocolate, big and dense with bitter-sweet dark chocolate intensity and broad tannins rising in the mouth to a massive peacock’s tail of a finish. A ‘wow’ of a wine. 350 cases produced. 19.5/20"
Score. 19.5 Richard Mayson, richardmayson.com, May 2018
"The 2016 The Stone Terraces Vintage Port from Graham’s demands more coaxing from the glass than the regular Vintage Port, but it has a little more precision and more mineralité, a clarity you rarely see in such young Port. The palate is super-smooth on the entry and the fruit profile is a mixture between red and black. raspberry, black cherries, cassis and hints of white pepper and clove. What I appreciate is the finish, the manner in which it almost delivers a second wave of intensity, a residual spiciness that lingers for 60 s
