Revista de Vinhos, tasting note published in May 25th 2023

Purple. Elegant floral perfume, hints of dark blackcurrant, bergamot, and cherry liqueur, very fine balsamic notes and pencil lead. Elegant and solid tannins, excellent acidity supporting the structure, immaculate volume. The finish is deep and contemporary. Subtleties are a constant predicate, and it is recognized as a Vintage from a cool year.

Graham's

An extraordinary edition of The Stone Terraces Vintage Port – only the fifth ever produced – as this vintage is only made when the vineyards deliver wines of unparalleled elegance and complexity. A Port that delights the senses now and will age beautifully for decades.

The Stone Terraces 2021 Vintage Port is a special bottling of only 4,800 75cl bottles and 280 “tappit hens” (225cl), representing just 2% of the total production at Quinta dos Malvedos in 2021.

On the main estate of Graham, Quinta dos Malvedos, there are just under three hectares of hand-built stone terraces dating from the late 18th century. Meticulously reconstructed after being abandoned in the aftermath of phylloxera, these stone terraces were designed to produce Ports of exceptional concentration and power, using viticultural techniques that have barely changed for hundreds of years.

The 2021 growth cycle and harvest were one of the coolest in recent years, with moderate conditions encouraging slower, gradual maturations with balanced ripening. The remarkably cool nights through the harvest contributed to wines with excellent acidity and very good color.

Bottled in May 2023. Winemakers: Charles Symington, Bernardo Nápoles

Symington Family Estates

There is a natural affinity between wine and family. Long-term vision and commitment through many generations are essential for the success of a family wine company. A newly planted vineyard takes time to produce great wines and often requires a lifetime’s work to yield best results. The Symington family, with Scottish, English and Portuguese ancestry has been present in the Douro for five generations — since 1882 — and through the current generation’s great grandmother, the family’s links to the wines of the Douro span 14 generations, to the mid-17th century and to the very beginnings of the history of Port.
