An outstanding Vintage Port year producing Vintage Ports with ripe fruit flavours and concentrated tannins, great balance and structure. James Symington of the Symington Port Group, "It is unlikely that the early high fermentation temperatures will prove to have been dangerously high and it is likely that the 1970 wines will prove to be quite outstandingly good. Their colour is exceptional and very purple and they seem to have plenty of body. Everybody seems delighted with the 1970s and it would surprise nobody if the year produced a Vintage."
Graham’s vintage port house was founded in the early 1820’s by William and John Graham and entered the port trade in 1826. The first Symington began to work for the family in 1882 and in 1890 Graham’s acquired the stunning Quinta dos Malvedos which neighbours Cockburn’s Quinta Tua. All Graham vintage ports are made with grapes that are produced exclusively from terrior owned by the company so that the consistency of producing excellent vintage port can be maintained. In 1970 Graham’s was acquired by the Symington family and continued investment in state of the art winemaking equipment have ensured that vintage graham’s port will continue to be of the highest quality and enjoyed for future generations.
