Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos 1998

Release Notes

The 1998 Malvedos is showing a classic very dark colour. The nose is incredibly rich with intense aromas of blackberry and hints of plums, cherries and bitter chocolate. The palate is powerful, beautifully rounded with layers of tannins providing great depth and concentration, with a long lingering finish.

Alcohol by volume v/v (20º C): 20%
Total Acidity g/l tartaric acid: 4,00
Baumé: 3,9

Tasting Notes

This was the first single quinta Malvedos i.e. all the grapes came from the Malvedos estate: very deep, black colour, thin purple rim; dense, meaty eucalypt and esteva (gum cistus) aromas, needing time to develop; lovely, solid foursquare style, ripe fruit with bitter-sweet dark chocolate concentration reflecting the very low yields this year (0.67grams per vine).

Score: 4 Stars

Deep colour. Open plummy aromas. Soft plummy fruit in the mouth backed by green peppery tannins. Very appealing.
