Grahams Port

graham-vintage-port
Graham’s are one of the most outstanding producers of vintage port. Their wines are renowned for their remarkable, richness, concentration and firm tannic strucure which combines to give them remarkable longevity. production is centred on the Malvedos vineyard, one of the most famous within the Duro region. Grapes from Malvedos are responsible for providing the famous house style: intense floral notes, opulent berry fruit flavours and racy flair. The Malvedos vineyard also lends its name to the famous single quinta produced in years when there is no declaration.

Graham's have a history spanning three centuries, dating back to 1820 when two brothers, William and John Graham, established the business in Oporto. Today, Graham’s is owned by the famous Symington family, who continue to produce some of Portugal’s finest wines.

Their Vintage ports are only produced in the best years, and these ports are always superb quality and long-lived.

Grahams Port, 1965

Malvedos Vintage Port (Very limited release)

In 2015, to mark 125 years since Graham’s first acquired Quinta dos Malvedos, a very limited quantity of Graham’s 1965 Quinta dos Malvedos Single Quinta Vintage Port was released. Now 50 years old, this exceedingly rare wine is as much a part of the history of one of the Douro’s greatest quintas, as it is proof of the remarkable longevity of Vintage Port.

Grahams Port, 1963

Vintage Port

"What a stunning 1963 vintage port this is! The bouquet draws you in, does not drag you in with its alcohol and reveals a fresh, well defined nose with a nutty edge, hints of cigar box and allspice. The palate is beautifully balanced, understated on the entry but building all the time, flashes of eucalyptus leading towards a more extrovert, clove tinged finish that hangs around the palate. Gorgeous Grahams! Tasted May 2009." Neil Martin, Wine Journal

Grahams Port, 1963

Single Harvest Tawny Port

This exceptional old Tawny Port brings together the finest crafts of Graham’s long winemaking tradition. It was made in one of the most celebrated years of the 20th century for Port – 1963. In this vintage, Graham’s produced both outstanding Vintage Port (aged in bottle) and Tawny Port (aged in oak casks). This 1963 Single Harvest Old Tawny Port has been aged in seasoned oak casks (barrels) for just over half a century and
epitomizes Graham’s hallmark complexity, elegance and balance. The wine was made from grapes grown at Graham’s flagship Douro Valley vineyard in northern Portugal: Quinta dos Malvedos.

Grahams Port, 1961

Malvedos Crusted Port

A very rare single quinta crusted port from Graham's.

Crusted port is usually a blend of port wine from several vintages, although single vintage crusted ports have sometimes been made in the past (the '61 Malvedos featured here being one of these rare examples). Unlike vintage port, which has to be sourced from grapes from a single vintage, crusted port affords the port blender the opportunity to make best use of the varying characteristics of different vintages. Crusted port is bottled unfiltered, and sealed with a driven cork. Like vintage port it needs to be decanted before drinking.

Grahams Port, 1942

Vintage Port (in neck stained label)

Declared by some shippers, despite the war, and in some cases declared and bottled in 1945 to celebrate Victory. First Vintage to be bottled exclusively in Portugal, rather than shipped in cask as was customary.

Little known, and production was small due to continued post-war restrictions, but well-cellared wines are still a pleasure.

Grahams Port, 1924

Vintage Port, in neck. unlabelled

Graham’s Port was founded in 1820 by Scottish brothers William and John Graham in Oporto, Portugal. The brothers, who already came from a successful entrepreneurial family, dedicated themselves to producing a line of fine vintage Ports. In 1890, they became one of the first Port quintas (estates) to source fruit from the upper Douro Valley and established the property Quinta dos Malvedos. The quality of the grapes from this vineyard is a major contribution to the finesse of their Ports. In that same year, the brothers opened the Graham’s Lodge in Vila Nova di Gaia, to store and showcase the wines.

Grahams Port, 1882

Ne Oublie

The Symington family has released 656 bottles of a Port that dates back to the arrival of their great-grandfather Andrew James Symington in Portugal in 1882.

The family have named this wine ‘Ne Oublie’ after the original Graham’s family motto and for the company where Andrew Symington started his life’s work. The name reflects the respect with which the family regard their great-grandparents’ joint decision to commit themselves and their descendants to Portugal, to the Douro and to Port.

Now 130 years later his direct descendants have bottled one of the remaining three barrels. The other two barrels have been entrusted to the next generation of the family and it is they who will decide their future, in 2025 at the earliest.
