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 2015, 17 Points

Very pale fox red. This wine must date from very soon after the Symingtons took over Graham’s and must contain masses of wine that pre-dates their era. Wonderfully waftily perfumed. Some rancio but the sweetness and featherlight orange peel impression trumps it. It’s like being caressed by a feather. With some walnuts on the finish. Very delicate but such a treat.
