W&J Graham's Six Grapes Reserve Port
The name Six Grapes refers to the symbol Graham's has always used to classify wines on a scale of one to six, Six Grapes denoting the lots with Vintage Port potential. From Graham's five key vineyard properties, Malvedos, Tua, Lages, Vila Velha and Vale de Malhadas, the lots with the most concentration, structure and the brightest fruit are given the coveted Six Grapes classification. With a youthful, fruit forward style, Six Grapes is a perfect wine to accompany dark chocolate or blue cheese, or simply to relax with at the end of the day. Dark red color, with seductive rich perfume of ripe plums and cherries. On the palate, complex, with a good structure and a long lingering finish.
This special edition has been made to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the familiar Graham's Six Grapes reserve Ruby. This is the latest in a series of special releases under the Six Grapes label. It comes from Graham's south-facing vineyards on the Douro north bank. The wine is of vintage Port quality-rich, but with some fine tannins. The jammy red fruits are lifted by acidity and by the fine perfumed character. Drink the wine now.
