What makes 2017 all the more significant is that it is the first back-to-back declaration since the Symington family started producing port in 1882. For all the houses to declare consecutively like this suggests that 2017 is something very special. From the flagship Quinta dos Malvedos vineyard, this carries all Graham's vintage port hallmarks: a full-bodied, rich and opulent port with decades of life ahead of it (drink: 2035-2080). Baked plum, damson, liquorice and minerality, each sip is beguilingly complex. Velvety and voluptuous.
