2009 Graham Malvedos

Post by jdaw1 » 00:00 Sat 09 Apr 2011

Tasted at The Big Fortified Tasting, a trade fair in London at Glaziers Hall on Wed 06 April 2011 (Review thread, containing links to other tasting notes). This being a large trade-fair event, tasting notes generally brief.

GM09, not for release for a decade or so. My only note was of how much sweeter this is than the other SFE 2009s.

Cask Sample 6 2009 VP
In the mouth, the sweetness is immediately notable, along with an explosion of fruit. Very good, but perhaps a touch less expressive and interesting than the Canais 2009.

Cask sample. Quite closed on the nose showing fresh cut grass and blueberry. Similar to the Bomfim there is great purity of fruit that dominates the palate with the tannins balanced and restrained. Medium bodied, with violets and blackcurrants on the aftertaste and finish. Full of elegance and fruit. 90-92/100.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
