    Six Grapes

     

    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 an 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.

      Old Vines Edition

      It has been over a hundred years since the famous Six Grapes motif was first used on a bottle of fine Port, our winemakers at W & J Graham, Charles Symington and Henry Shotton, have decided to bottle a small quantity of a special wine made exclusively from the oldest vines on Graham’s five Quintas. The presentation of this special edition Six Grapes Old Vines Port pays homage to the original Six Grapes label that helped make the wine famous so many years ago. This wine will only be available in very limited quantities.

      Across the five Graham’s estates we have preserved vineyards of old mixed vines, which are frequently more than forty years old. These beautiful, gnarled old vines produce immensely low yields of fruit, which grow in small, tight bunches with intense concentration and complexity.

      As would be expected from a wine made from such low yielding vines the Six Grapes Old Vines Port is deep purple in colour. It has complex floral aromas, redolent with rockrose, menthol and anise. The richness and opulent character of the wine is perfectly balanced by its refreshing acidity. It has great structure and concentration, with mineral notes that express the Douro’s schist soils, black plum and liquorice, all complemented by a lingering velvety smooth finish, the result of the ripe, fine grained tannins from these mature vines.

      Serve slightly chilled, between 16-18° C. There is no need to decant.

      The Six Grapes Old Vines Port is a perfect wine to pair with desserts such as cheese, dark chocolate or berry fruits. It is also ideally suited to drinking after dinner to fully appreciate its long finish and complexity.
