Notes from the W & J Graham:
"The extraordinary quality of the wines from the Malvedos vineyard is such that in Vintage declarations these wines provide the main structure of Graham's classic Vintage Ports. In most interim years, the wines from Malvedos merit bottling as a Single Quinta Vintage Port: Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port.
Graham's Malvedos Vintage Ports have won an astonishing collection of awards at the world's major international wine competitions over recent years, with 14 Gold medals over the last two decades, clearly outperforming all other Quinta Vintage Ports.
Graham's 2004 Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port has a black/purple colour. A lovely complex nose with excellent sweet and rich fruit aromas such as black cherry, black currant and blackberry. On the palate it is packed with solid, structured, rich and intense black fruit flavours and an admirably long finish.
A fabulous way to end a lunch or dinner, Graham's 2004 Quinta dos Malvedos pairs wonderfully with chocolate desserts, such as chocolate mousse, but it can also be enjoyed on its own, providing a memorable moment in the company of good friends".
Tasting notes from Anthony Rose:
"Seductively perfumed with blackberry and spice, this is subtle, yet richly concentrated… with just enough age for the tannins to have softened to smooth velvet”.
