Graham's, Quinta dos Malvedos, Douro Valley, Portugal, 2010
(at Menier Penthouse, London SE1, 03 Oct 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2030
Graham's acquired Quinta dos Malvedos in 1890 and created one of the Douro's most famous estates. The Ports from here are known for their hallmark floral, eucalyptus and menthol character, which is allied here to rounded fleshy dark plum and black cherry fruit, and a smooth chocolatey darkness. 2010 isn't among the greatest vintages for Port, but the advantage of opening a 'lesser' vintage is that the wines are ready to open sooner! Intense and refined, this one will bring a lot of pleasure this Christmas.
