Six Grapes is one of Graham's original Port blends and is thus one of the Company's oldest marks.
It is a very full-bodied, luscious wine drawn from the same vineyards as Graham's Vintage Ports. Blended from two or three years' harvests, the wine is an average of five to six years old when bottled. It follows the Graham's Vintage style very closely, although it has softened more quickly by being matured in oak casks rather than in bottle. Its extremely rich fruity style makes it a truly superb, rare and appealing Port.
The rather curious depiction on the bottle of bunches of grapes has always been used to identify the "Six Grapes" blend.
|The nose shows concentrated fruit flavors, followed by aromas of oak and tobacco. Flavors are sweet, merging into strawberry and rose jam preserves, as well as raisined grapes and cinnamon stick. Intensely sweet and luscious. ”
