This is a landmark wine for Graham's, not only being the first Vintage of a new millennium, but being the first Vintage wine to enjoy the extraordinary results achieved by the new robotic 'lagares' at Malvedos in the inaugural year of our remodelled winery. Significant also has been the decision to include a rather larger proportion of mature Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional from Vila Velha, a classic riverside Quinta a short distance downstream from Malvedos, and some spectacular old vine lots from Vale de Malhadas in the Upper Douro.

“Riveting from the first sniff with perfumed and lifted scents of violets, figs, licorice, esteva, eucalyptus and cloves that provide invigorating freshness. An ethereal and deeply complex aromatic arsenal. Immediately fun to sip, even with some spirit protruding early on that disappeared between days 2 and 3. It’s a heavy weight, rich, soft and sensuous, a real pleasure across the palate with juicy acidity and smooth no-nonsense tannins that gain power even after swallowing. Ripe, intense and hedonistic sweet fruit of blueberry pie and brambly grape purity caress the palate with their fleshy concentrated layers of flavor and long lingering aftertaste with milk chocolate accents. Drink at any stage of its life, but it will be incredible after 2040-2060. A gorgeous Graham’s classic for the ages!" Roy Hersh, For the Love of Port
