The blend of Six Grapes Special ‘River Quintas’ Edition is made up of approximately one third each of wines made from Quinta do Tua’s old stone terraces from the 2014 and 2015 vintages, and one-third from the Malvedos Touriga Franca ‘Vinha dos Barcos’ vineyard made in 2015. The wines were all vinified in the lagares at the Malvedos winery. The three components have married together to produce a wine of great charm and complexity in the best traditions of Graham’s.
Deep bluish-purple colour, as opaque as a young Vintage Port. Aromas of blackberry and cassis with hints of mint and eucalyptus, ending on a note of tar and spice. Concentrated on the palate; dark plum, liquorice and chocolate flavours, balanced by a wonderful fresh acidity and a persistent, taut finish.
Store and Serve Advices:
Store the bottle horizontally in a dark place with constant temperature, ideally between 12ºC and 15ºC.
Graham’s “Six Grapes” is delicious served at the end of a meal, for example with rich, nutty or chocolate desserts, as well as strong cheeses.
