Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos 1968

Tasting Notes

Richard Mayson critic source
2010 tasting note year

Good mid-deep, youthful hue, thin brown rim; smell of brown sugar, medicinal but not especially scented or aromatic; moderately sweet and rich but quite hard by comparison with most wines so far. Stops short. From a wet vintage. The last Malvedos until 1976.

1992 tasting note year

A recent bottle seemed to be nutty and drying out but two others delicious, with fragrant spicy nose like an old garrafeira*. Sweet, fullish, yet lean, expanding and expansive flavour.  * Note:  garrafeira is a Portuguese word that means wine cellar, but can also refer to an unusual style of port aged in glass demijohns

Score: 3 Stars

Starting to fade on the palate.  Medium red with a garnet edge, slightly volatile cherry nose, medium-bodied, with sweet fruit flavours but slightly acidic.  Drink up soon.
