Graham’s greatest vineyard is the company’s famed Quinta dos Malvedos. Acquired in 1890, it is acknowledged to be one of the Upper Douro’s finest vineyards. Malvedos is situated in the Upper Corgo region near Tua, between Pinhão and the Valeira dam, on the north bank of the Douro River. Its south-facing vineyards ensure prolonged exposure to the sun, resulting in excellent ripening of the grapes during the growing season, which is essential to the production of the finest Port. The consistent climate in this part of the valley is reflected in the supreme quality of the wines produced in most years. The 10 year annual average rainfall at the Quinta is 658mm and the soil’s main component is schist, a laminated, slate-like rock. It has a luxurious and lusty palate, showing cassis and black plum. Big and bold but in a very polished, attractive manner, Graham’s 1999 Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port is a fabulous partner to chocolate desserts, such as chocolate mousse and soufflés.
