Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos 2006 Vintage Port with wooden box
An excellent Single Quinta Vintage Port from Graham's flagship estate, Quinta dos Malvedos.
Very youthful deep purple colour for its 13 years of age. On the nose powerful and with great depth of fruit, packed with layers of ‘jammy’ dark fruits such as cassis and blackberry. On the palate full bodied and well structured, with complex flavours of dark fuits and nuances of black chocolate. Excellent balance combined to ripe and firm tannins lead to a prolonged and stylish finish.
Vintage Ports are only declared in the very best years, but such is the consistency of quality of the wines from the Malvedos vineyard that in most intervening years, wines from Malvedos, such as this fine example, merit bottling as standalone wines from a single vineyard: Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port.
Decant before serving, ideally a few hours beforehand. An excellent dessert wine to enjoy on its own or with chocolate desserts. A very good match for blue cheeses.
