Alexandre Mariz, the estate manager at Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos and neighbouring Quinta do Tua was very optimistic regarding the prospects for the 2013 harvest and together with the head winemaker, Charles Symington and the Malvedos winemaker, Henry Shotton, he identified the finest vineyards within the two properties from which the wines for the 2013 Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) blend were largely sourced. Some of the finest wine lots were drawn from the vinha velha (old vines) and Tinta Amarela at Tua, whilst both properties also delivered excellent Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca grapes. Smaller contributions were made by old vines from other vineyards traditionally supplying Graham’s: Quinta da Vila Velha and Quinta do Vale de Malhadas. The grapes were trodden in the lagares at the small Malvedos winery.

Very deep purple in colour with an intense garnet edge. The wine offers enticing aromas of red and black fruits with some lovely mint and eucalyptus notes. It is generous on the palate, with Graham’s typical opulence, revealing delicious blackberry fruit underscored by ripe, polished tannins, which give the wine great freshness and vitality. The finish reveals Graham’s signature complexity and elegance in equal measure.
