W&J GRAHAM

Founded in 1820 by W&J Graham in Portugal’s Douro valley, Graham’s has developed over time an unmatched reputation as one of the greatest names in Port. The Superb performance of Graham’s Ports relies on the choice of the finest quality grapes, coming primarily from five Quintas, amongst the best in the upper Douro valley: Quinta dos Malvedos, Quinta do Tua, Quinta das Lages (in the Rio Torto) and two others, Quinta da Vila Velha and Quinta do Vale de Malhadas, privately owned by a member of the Symington family.

These Quintas, sitting in the heart of the upper Douro valley, enjoy an ideal combination of a hot & dry micro-climate, coupled with a unique schist soil that provide the best conditions for growing and optimal ripening.

TASTING REVIEWS & SCORES

Jancis Robinson, December 2013, 17.5 Points

Beautiful aged tawny colour with pale apricot rim. Light raisin and rancio with some lovely smoothness on the finish. Real tang – I have a horrid feeling that if I were served this blind I would be hesitating between an old Malmsey madeira and and old tawny port. But perhaps the lower acidity on this would be the clue. This is a lovely wine; much more interesting than the Sandeman version. I can even taste a bit of apricot fruit in there. Auto suggestion or a hint of Tokay?!

Jancis Robinson, September 2016, 17.5 Points

Rich fox red. Some suggestion of rancio on the nose and then extremely sweet with a really energetic, racy, vibrant finish.
