1964 Graham Malvedos

Post by DRT » 02:23 Sun 21 Mar 2010

Tasted as part of a vertical of 24 Graham's and Graham's Malvedos vintages at The RAF Club, Piccadilly, London, on 22nd March 2010.

The links: *Please note that the 2008 Cask Sample was donated to this tasting by the Symington family before the final blend was complete so this may not accurately represent what the 2008 Graham's or Graham's Malvedos will be, should either of these be approved and declared later in 2010.

Alas I was unable to take a tasting note of this port.

A measure darker than the 1962. Attractively floral on the nose. Slightly less complex in the mouth than on the nose, but another beautifully straight-forward and elegant wine.

1964 Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port

Post by Andy Velebil » 05:19 Fri 30 Jul 2010

1964 Graham’s Malvedos Vintage Port:
I was amazed this was still showing some dark ruby colors. An amazingly youthful nose full of strawberries, tobacco, and eucalyptus. I immediately noticed how full bodied and youthful this was on the palate, which treaded a nice balance of sweetness to fruit. The fruit seemed to dry out a little on the medium length finish. This was a very hot vintage with no rain during harvest. Ronald Symington stated, ‟!Rarely have weather conditions varied to such extremes during a vintage.” 90 Points
