This is a monumental wine with a great balance of fruit and tannin. Medium ruby with a garnet edge, enticing nose of bitter chocolate and plums, full-bodied, with chocolate and raspberry flavors, medium tannins and a very long finish. JS, Web Only What a stunning vintage port this is!

1963 Graham's Vintage Port
In the company changed ownership from the founding family to the Symingtons, who have themselves been Port producers sincehowever through their Anglo-Portuguese great-grandmother, they can trace their Port heritage back to The vineyards of the Douro, set on the slopes surrounding the Douro River known as the Duero in Spainare incredibly steep, necessitating the use of terracing and thus, manual vineyard management as well as harvesting. The Douro's best sites, rare outcroppings of Cambrian schist, are reserved for vineyards that yield high quality Port. While more than indigenous varieties are approved for wine production in the Douro, there are five primary grapes that make up most Port and the region's excellent, though less known, red table wines.

The family already had extensive business interests in Scotland and India but they decided to channel their considerable resources and energy towards the pursuit of the Port industry. Later that century, a young Scot called Andrew James Symington emigrated to work for Graham's, but, losing interest in textiles, he became a successful port shipper and his descendants today now own Graham's, which is the jewel in the crown of the Symington Group. Throughout the 19th century Grahams rapidly grew and went from strength to strength and in they became one of the first Port companies to invest in Upper Douro vineyards with the acquisition of Quinta dos Malvedos. The vineyard produces Ports with floral characteristics, opulent blackberry fruit aromas backed by well balanced tannins.
