A great structured and balanced Vintage Port

Vintage marked by unusual climatic conditions for the region of the Duriense northwest of Portugal2016 will be remembered as an exceptional year for the Porto. After a warm winter and heavy rainfall, the summer was hot. The harvest began in September and was carried out with grapes in perfect health and with an excellent maturity which augurs well for a great vintage.

The House of Porto Graham's has therefore taken the decision to declare the vintage of its Graham's Vintage Port 2016. An exceptional Port produced in very limited quantities, Graham's Vintage Port 2016 is made from a selection of grapes from the House's finest Quintas (dos Malvedos, dos lages, da Vila Velha and Vale Malhadas).

Intensely concentrated, with great aromatic opulence, Graham's Vintage 2016 Vintage Port has a brilliant nose of brilliant fruit, with notes of black berries, balanced by a beautiful freshness. On the palate, the attack on the palate highlights the structure and complexity of the Port, revealing the delicacy of chocolate notes and the freshness of mentholated notes. An exceptional Vintage Port.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Vintage Port is a blend of 37% Touriga Nacional, 42% Touriga Franca and various others. It comes in with 115 grams of residual sugar. A bit bigger than Dow's this year, this is more intense as well. The better wine of these two benchmarks seems to be this Graham's. Tight on the finish, aromatic and very flavorful, this actually opens rather well and shows off its lovely fruit. The Dow's will be approachable a bit earlier, perhaps, and this may reward aging even more. As always, Graham's is wonderfully delicious. That's one hallmark of the house. I'm not sure this is a truly great Graham's, but at the moment, it is enticing, with plenty of potential for improvement. There were 6,325 cases produced, plus some bottles in other formats.
