Drawn from the finest parcels across Graham’s four estates, this Vintage Port is only produced in exceptional years.

A classic Vintage Port that combines complexity, structure and balance.

THE YEAR: The 2016 harvest in the Douro brought perfectly-timed rain that turned a good year into a great one.

TASTING NOTES: Classic expression of the Graham’s style: concentrated and opulent with layers of fresh, ripe, black fruit flavours. Aromas of mint and eucalyptus with chocolate notes. The Graham’s 2016 Vintage Port combines superb complexity, structure and balance.

STORAGE & SERVING: Store the bottle lying down. Decant to filter the natural sediment before serving. Enjoy within 2-3 days of opening.

The 2016 Vintage Port is a blend of 37% Touriga Nacional, 42% Touriga Franca and various others. It comes in with 115 grams of residual sugar. A bit bigger than Dow's this year, this is more intense as well. The better wine of these two benchmarks seems to be this Graham's. Tight on the finish, aromatic and very flavorful, this actually opens rather well and shows off its lovely fruit. The Dow's will be approachable a bit earlier, perhaps, and this may reward aging even more. As always, Graham's is wonderfully delicious. That's one hallmark of the house. I'm not sure this is a truly great Graham's, but at the moment, it is enticing, with plenty of potential for improvement. There were 6,325 cases produced, plus some bottles in other formats - 95 Points The Wine Advocate Jul 19, 2018.
