Description

Founded in 1820 by William and John Graham in Portugal’s Douro Valley, for nearly two centuries Graham’s has cultivated its reputation as one of the greatest names in Port. The quality of Graham’s Port relies on the finest grapes, primarily sourced from five iconic quintas in the Douro Valley: Quinta dos Malvedos, Quinta do Tua, Quinta das Lages and two others, Quinta da Vila Velha and Quinta do Vale de Malhadas, which are privately owned by members of the Symington family. The Six Grapes symbol originated in the nineteenth century as the code that Graham’s used to identify the barrels containing the very best wines made at each harvest, symbols used to classify wines on a scale of one to six. These wines were chosen for their outstanding quality and usually bottled as Vintage Port. By the early 1900’s Graham’s started bottling and offering a wine carefully selected from these ‘lotes’ under the Six Grapes label. Over a Century later, Six Grapes continues to be Graham’s signature wine and a quality benchmark for the Port category.

TASTING NOTES

It closely resembles a young Graham’s Vintage Port in style: dark red colour with fragrant blackberry and fresh aromas of cassis and liquorice. Full-bodied with a good structure and rich black fruit on the palate.
