Grahams Malvedos Port 20%

By GRAHAMS PORT

Long, forward, spicy wine with delicious silky black and forest fruits. There are notes here too of cedar and spice adding complexity to this intense, full wine. Drinking well now, but has the structure to keep maturing.

More about Grahams Port ... Graham’s greatest vineyard is the company’s famed Quinta dos Malvedos. Acquired in 1890, it is acknowledged to be one of the Upper Douro’s finest vineyards. Malvedos is situated in the Upper Corgo region near Tua, between Pinhão and the Valeira dam, on the north bank of the Douro River. Its south-facing vineyards ensure prolonged exposure to the sun, resulting in excellent ripening of the grapes during the growing season, which is essential to the production of the finest Port. The consistent climate in this part of the valley is reflected in the supreme quality of the wines produced in most years. The 10 year annual average rainfall at the Quinta is 658mm and the soil’s main component is schist, a laminated, slate-like rock.

The quality of the wines from the Malvedos vineyard is such that in Vintage declarations these wines provide the main structure for Graham’s classic Vintage Ports. In most of the interim years, the wines from Malvedos will merit bottling as a single estate, or ‘single quinta’ Vintage Port – from a single harvest. 

Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos 2004 was awarded the 2016 Vintage Port Trophy by the International Wine Challenge, for the second consecutive year. This is a Single Quinta Vintage Port – which was more highly received than any fully declared Vintage in the International Wine Challenge. Learn about Port Styles here

Vintage notes; Picking was scheduled to start at Malvedos in the first few days of September, but this was delayed because some welcome rain fell on the 5th and continued intermittently for 3 days. This rain was highly beneficial and sugar levels increased in the grapes and the skins softened to a marked degree. Picking then started at the Quinta on the 7th September and continued to the 21st. This was one of the earliest vintages in many years.

Drink now; It can be drunk now but will repay a few more years, upto 12-15 in your cellar.

Press Reviews for 2004 Malvedos

"Heaps of prunes and black fruit enveloping the nose and palate. Sweetness mingles with spices in a swirling melange of complexity, supported by crisp acidity and structured tannins. This is truly delicious now but could age well for 10 years and more.”

Christelle Guibert, Decanter Magazine, January 2017

"A tasty vintage port, this is concentrated, dense and spicy with a sweet, raisiny edge to the intense black-cherry and blackberry fruits. It’s just beginning to enter some mellow maturity and is the real deal.”

Jamie Goode, The Sunday Express, 8th January 2017

The brand new vintage of Quinta dos Malvedos, the property which forms the backbone of the mighty Graham’s Port portfolio, is utterly stunning.  Thrillingly well made, this regal wine is sheer perfection with immensely glossy, power-packed fruit.

Matthew Jukes, The Daily Mail, 4th March 2017
