Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2019
"Graham’s 10 Years Old Tawny Port is a tribute to craftsmanship. It epitomizes the passion for excellence and precision that is at the heart of every one of Graham’s handmade Tawny Ports. After a decade of care and slow oak-maturation this wine is a wonderful example of the complex flavours of Tawny Port. This is a Port wine for those who appreciate quality in every detail.
Deep tawny colour with complex nutty aromas, combined with hints of honey and figs. On the palate rich, mature fruit flavours; beautifully mellowed; with a luscious, long finish. Perfect match with sweet desserts, such as apple pie with cinnamon or almond cake."
"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 ‘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."
