Graham`s The Stone Terraces 2015
A tiny 2.9ha section of Graham’s prized Quinta dos Malvedos that dates back to the 18th Century has always stood out for its distinctive character and unparalleled quality, and in 2011, the decision was made to bottle it as a new limited production Vintage Port called The Stone Terraces. The 2015 release comprises three parcels from two plots, one known as ‘Cardenhos’ and the other as ‘Port Arthur’, and is a Touriga Nacional dominant field blend. It is a brilliant Vintage Port with startling purity of fruit, exceptionally fine tannic structure and a profoundly deep inner complexity. Though charming and seductive with its youthful notes of rich plummy fruit and lifted floral aromatics, this will need at least a decade in bottle to soften its extraordinary power and tightly wound structure.
