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 2015 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a commemorative edition, bottled in 2020, the year which marks Graham’s bicentenary (1820-2020). The 2015 LBV was produced from grapes sourced from four of Graham’s vineyards located in various prime sites in the mountainous
Douro Valley. Charles Symington, Graham’s head winemaker, made this entry in his 2015 vintage logbook: ‘Patience, playing the waiting game, were key during the 2015 harvest in the Dou-ro.’

TASTING NOTES

Graham’s 2015 LBV has a deep red-black colour. The wine brims with bright aromas of blackberries and liquorice, with background notes of rock rose and mint that are typical of the Touriga Franca, a variety that excelled in 2015. On the palate the wine is full and compact with a plummy, succulent texture that is balanced by the lively freshness and spice element provided by the Sousão.

FOOD PAIRING
The Graham’s 2015 LBV pairs wonderfully with dark chocolate desserts as well as semi-cured and
cured cheeses like Cheddar and Manchego. No need to decant. Once open, the wine will remain fresh for up to six weeks.
