Graham’s 20 Years Old represents superlative quality. Its principal attributes are great complexity and harmony. With an amber, golden tawny colour, denoting considerable age, Graham’s 20 Years Old has an excellent bouquet, with a characteristic ‘nutty’ character (almonds) and delicious mature fruit with hints of orange peel, exquisitely mellowed by careful ageing. Rich, sweet and smooth on the palate, it is perfectly balanced, with a long and lingering finish. This is an excellent alternative to Vintage Port at less formal occasions and will keep for some weeks after opening.
Six Grapes has won a remarkable 7 gold medals and 2 trophies at the most prestigious international tasting competitions over the last two decades. This is Graham’s Reserve Port and is one of the house’s signature wines with remarkable quality, finesse and elegance.
The distinctive depiction of the six bunches of grapes on the bottle originates from the marks long-used in the Graham’s Lodge to classify the quality of the wines in the casks. The six-grapes symbol is Graham’s age-old mark of quality, used to identify the very finest wines from the best vineyards, which were destined to make up the Vintage Port or Six Grapes lotes.
Six Grapes is a big-hearted wine, sourced from the same vineyards that contribute to Graham’s famed Vintage Ports. It closely resembles a young Graham’s Vintage Port in style: full-bodied, with rich black fruit on the palate, and fragrant blackberry aromas.
This wine can best be thought of as the ‘everyday Port for the Vintage Port drinker.’ Six Grapes is bottled when it is still relatively young in order to retain its freshness and characteristic opulence. Once bottled it is ready to be served and drunk and should be served slightly cool, between 12 and 16º Celsius.
