Overview

Graham’s Late Bottled Vintage, like Vintage Port, is a wine of a single year however it is not a “declared” Vintage Port. Whereas Vintage Port spends only two years in casks and then matures in bottle, LBV is aged in casks and then bottled at between four and six years of age. This wood-ageing encourages the wine’s development and thus, at the time of bottling it has completed its maturation and is ready for drinking, without the need for decanting.

Graham’s Late Bottled Vintage illustrates Graham’s house style very effectively: great rich fruit concentration with spicy complexity and depth, held together by superb structure and balance. Graham’s has always been renowned for producing outstanding Ports and its Late Bottled Vintage Port is no exception, standing as a leader in its category.

Winery Profile

Founded in 1820 by W&J Graham in Portugal’s Douro valley, Graham's has developed over time an unmatched reputation as one of the greatest names in Port.

The superb performance of GRAHAM’S Ports relies on the choice of the finest quality grapes, coming primarily from five Quintas, amongst the best in the upper Douro valley: Quinta dos Malvedos,Quinta do Tua, Quinta das Lages (in the Rio Torto) and two others, Quinta da Vila Velha and Quinta do Vale de Malhadas, privately owned by a member of the Symington family. These Quintas, sitting in the heart of the upper Douro valley, enjoy an ideal combination of a hot & dry micro-climate, coupled with a unique schist soil that provide the best conditions for growing and optimal ripening. In a tradition that lasts for generations, GRAHAM’S also buys grapes from selected farmers in the finest districts.
