In most interim years, the wines from Malvedos merit bottling as a Single Quinta Vintage Port: Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port.

Graham's Malvedos Vintage Ports have won an astonishing collection of awards at the world's major international wine competitions over recent years, with 14 Gold medals over the last two decades, clearly outperforming all other Quinta Vintage Ports.

Graham's 2004 Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port has a black/purple colour. A lovely complex nose with excellent sweet and rich fruit aromas such as black cherry, black currant and blackberry. On the palate it is packed with solid, structured, rich and intense black fruit flavours and an admirably long finish.

A fabulous way to end a lunch or dinner, Graham's 2004 Quinta dos Malvedos pairs wonderfully with chocolate desserts, such as chocolate mousse, but it can also be enjoyed on its own, providing a memorable moment in the company of good friends.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2004)
The 2004 Quinta dos Malvedos comes in at 107 grams per liter of residual sugar. It is a big mouthful, gorgeous from the get-go, young, exuberant and rather delicious. In tasting the trio of 2004 Single Quintas from Symington for this issue (all late released and current releases), this started a hair behind the Dow, but its rich and full-bodied feel may give it an edge this year, at least now. I've often see a Dow come along slowly while a Graham is a bit more open and accessible. We'll see as they develop, but right now this big gulp is the early eye-opener of the three. It's my pick for now, even if only by a hair and even if the 2004 Dow may be the turtle that one day overtakes the hare (wordplay intended). Although a bit more approachable than the Dow, at least on first taste, it should keep well as it does have nice support underneath the fruit.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2004)
Rich and powerful, with plenty of grip to the well-spiced flavors of blackberry, dried blueberry and dark plum. Dense and juicy midpalate, opening up with pepper and chocolate notes on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 3,000 cases made.

The wonders of wood: Graham's is one of the last Port companies with its own cooperage team, who care for each cask individually. This, combined with the skill of the Master Blender, has resulted in Graham's mastering the art of making an outstanding 30 Years Old Tawny Port

Le Sol translated from French means “the soil”, appropriate when one considers the significant impact the stony soils of the Gimblett Gravels Vineyard have on this wine called "Le Sol".
