Graham's 1991

Release Notes

Primarily from Quinta dos Malvedos and Quinta dos Lages.  Graham's 1991 Vintage is an immensely sturdy wine.  It has a very attractive nose reminiscent of blackberries and violets and at the same time is rich but very firm in the mouth. 

Alcohol by volume v/v (20º C): 20%
Total Acidity g/l tartaric acid: 4,13
Baumé: 3,8

Still very powerful and immature.  Lovely bouquet.

Graham's 1991 Vintage Port gets my nod as the port of the vintage.  While keeping in mind that Graham's aims for a sweeter-styled port, there is no doubting the opaque purple/black color, or the explosive nose of black fruits, licorice, spring flowers, and tar.  Thick and full-bodied, with a satiny texture and a blockbuster, alcoholic finish, this is a top-notch vintage port.

Score: 94/100

Getting better all the time in the bottle. Real blockbuster of a wine that sneaks up on you. Beautiful tar, grape and berry aromas and flavours. It's full-bodied, quite sweet and reserved, but kicks off at the end with loads of fruit and tannins. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

Score: 93/100

Top of the tasting out of 31 Vintage Ports tasted. Very good colour. Fine rich concentrated nose. Lovely fruit. Real depth here. Full and quite powerful, but a wine of real richness and intensity. Complete. Marvellous breed. Fabulous long complex finish. Excellent.

Score: 19.5/20
