Grahams Six Grapes Special River Quintas Edition Port
Six Grapes Special ‘River Quintas’ Edition Port pays homage to the original Six Grapes label that helped make the wine famous so many years ago. “We chose two classic riverside vineyard sites for our ‘River Quintas’ blend, the first being the nineteenth century stone terraces at Graham’s Quinta do Tua, which are remarkable for the sheer thickness of their schist walls.”
The blend of Six Grapes Special ‘River Quintas’ Edition is made up of approximately one third each of wines made from Quinta do Tua’s old stone terraces from the 2014 and 2015 vintages, and one-third from the Malvedos Touriga Franca ‘Vinha dos Barcos’ vineyard made in 2015. The wines were all vinified in the lagares at the Malvedos winery. The three components have married together to produce a wine of great charm and complexity in the best traditions of Graham’s.
Deep bluish-purple colour, as opaque as a young Vintage Port.
Concentrated on the palate; dark plum, liquorice and chocolate flavours, balanced by a wonderful fresh acidity and a persistent, taut finish.
Served with rich, nutty or chocolate desserts as well as a variety of cheeses, including blue cheese. Alternatively, it may be enjoyed on its own; it is a dessert in itself.
Aromas of blackberry and cassis with hints of mint and eucalyptus, ending on a note of tar and spice.
