Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos 1979

Tasting Notes

Richard Mayson critic

World of Fine Wine (magazine) source
2012 tasting note year

A high-yielding year, with a prolonged summer drought; brick-red core, amber rim; fine, fragrant, open floral character that typifies a fully mature Vintage Port; very beautiful on the palate, soft and suave, retaining flesh and body, with milk-chocolate depth and length.  Really lovely to drink now but not, I think, a wine to keep for any length of time.  Drink to 2018.

Score: 15/20

Very nice, sweet, fullish, crisp, fruity flavour. Refreshingly acidic finish.

Too light and too dull.  Medium ruby, fresh berry aromas, medium-bodied, with silky, simple fruit flavours and light tannins.
