Grahams Malvedos Vineyard

In 1820 the brothers William and John Graham established the firm W&J Graham's in Porto with the intention of specialising in the production of the finest Port wines. Over the course of the 19th century their Ports achieved an extraordinary reputation for consistent quality, and in 1890 the firm made two substantial investments to ensure the continued success and quality of their wines: the purchase of Quinta dos Malvedos in the heart of the Douro wine growing region, and the building of the magnificent Lodge on a hill overlooking Porto and Gaia, where the wines are aged in perfect conditions.

The Malvedos vineyard forms the backbone of all Grahams Vintage Ports. It is one of the Douro's best sites.

Whilst in Oporto and the Douro earlier this month I had an interesting discussion with Grahams winemaker Henry Shotton about the 2003/2004 vintages. Grahams declared 2003 but I got the impression that if they had their way again they would have declared 2004 instead. 2004 has turned out to be a classically styled vintage and the character has kept the wines very fresh. They are less sweet than 2003 and more lively on the palate.

Had Grahams declared 2004 this Quinta dos Malvedos would be remarkably close to the wine you would be tasting. The good news is that it is half the price of the 2003 for quite similar quality.

We discovered a little cache of bottles and half bottles in our warehouse. We have 42 bottles and 20 half bottles. Today, both are available at a 15% discount. Great buying for a lovely port with a decade of bottle age.

Roy Hersh, For the Love of Port: 
The Malvedos has really fleshed out since I first tried it in late June. Having received considerably more decanting time, (I believe I heard 5 hours mentioned) which also helped. This '04 is an inky purple monster that presented spicy and floral notes with the essence of pure blueberry. Ultra-ripe on the palate with prune and juicy blackberry flavors that come to the fore. Good depth and medium tannins show the stuffing is all there, while finishing with a long chocoholics dream of an aftertaste. 94 Points
