GRAHAM’S QUINTA DOS MALVEDOS 2004 VINTAGE PORT
DECANTER’S MOST EXCITING WINES OF 2016
A Decanter Magazine panel of judges tasted blind 195 wines, nominated from a selection of wines from around the world assessed over the last 12 months, and compiled a list of the 75 best wines tasted in 2016. This year, Decanter paid “particular attention to wines with ‘wow factor’”. Sarah Jane Evans MW stated: ‘we were looking for the most complete wines, the most individual, fascinating and the most genuinely enjoyable. They did not have to be classically perfect wines, just memorable.’
Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos 2004 Vintage Port was one of those memorable wines; one of just two Ports included in the ranking of the most exciting wines of 2016. This Malvedos 2004 Vintage Port had previously been awarded a Gold Medal and the REGIONAL TROPHY at the 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards. More recently, in May 2016, the International Wine Challenge also recognized the exceptional qualities of the Quinta dos Malvedos 2004 Vintage Port awarding it a Gold Medal and VINTAGE PORT TROPHY for the second year running — a remarkable achievement.
Over the last two decades Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Ports have garnered an impressive tally of ratings and awards. In the three leading UK Wine Competitions: International Wine Challenge; International Wine & Spirit Competition; Decanter World Wine Awards, Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Ports have been awarded no less than 19 Gold Medals and 3 Trophies. 25 years ago the Quinta dos Malvedos 1988 Vintage Port became the first ever wine from Portugal ranked in Wine Spectator magazine’s annual TOP 100 ranking. No other Quinta Vintage Port comes close to this record. The world’s leading wine critics and wine competitions are in no doubt as to which is the finest Quinta Vintage Port.
