Grahams Six Grapes Port

95 Points Decanter
In stock
This could be described as a proper Vintage Port that's merely been declassified. The wine is made from grapes of the highest standard, hence the six grapes symbol and idea - an historic marking used to designate only the best barrels. But it includes more than one vintage and is bottled fairly early, so it is richly fruited and soft in style - bringing heaps of depth and roundness without needing age in cellar. It is described as an everyday back-up for connoisseurs of the very best Vintage Port, which means for ordinary punters like ourselves it is the best Port we'd ever need.

Its Origins

What The Critics Say

95/100 Decanter World Wine Awards, 2016 (also Regional Trophy in 2013)

"Warm, fruity and inviting chocolate aromas meld with herbal, minty notes and mature fruit compote underneath. The Deliciously youthful and fiery palate contains sweet black fruit, rich plum notes, some herbiness and a lively acidity. There are fruity ripe tannins on the finish."

Vinous, Stephen Tanzer

"Very saturated dark red. Youthful port aromas of cassis, licorice, chocolate, herbs and damp earth. Very intense, sweet flavors of chocolate and dark berries. Robust yet smooth and not obviously alcoholic. Superb fruit is given clarity by firm acids. Real wine-class port, with terrific structure, freshness and delineation of flavor."

Winemaker notes

"Essentially a "declassified Vintage Port", the Six Grapes Blend is made primarily of the four uncontested ‘stars’ of the Port region, the violety and aromatic Touriga Franca, the rich, tannic and well structured Touriga Nacional, the raspberry tinged Tinta Roriz and the sweet chocolatey Tinta Barroca."
