Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos 1958

Tasting Notes

A good summer growing season marred by rain during vintage, some shippers declared; now very pale pink to amber; fine, delicate, more than a touch of Tawny character (more so than Vintage), with almonds and a soft, creamy element to the nose and palate; very elegant and linear, sweet fruit backed by peppery tannins, still fresh and expressive on the finish, long and delightful.

Score: 16/20

The 1958 was the run-away favourite of a vertical of 17 vintages of Quinta dos Malvedos.  It was extraordinary, virtually water clear with a pale pink tinge in the center of the wine but with a fantastic complex rich and deep floral nose and a huge rich full flavour on the palate. Really delicious with all the pepper & spice of a full bodied vintage port. Lovely mature flavours with almost a hint of that transition from vintage flavours to the caramel tones of an old tawny.  I  don’t remember the last time I tasted this wine and it was a total revelation.

Quite pale and pinkish in colour; still with a bloom of youth on the nose, very pretty, gentle, fragrant and floral but without much richness or intensity; more powerful on the palate, lovely full, gentle richness and still quite fresh on the finish.

Score: 3/4 Stars
