A combination of herbal and floral fragrances suggest pine resin, eucalyptus and rock rose — a common wildflower in the Douro. Aromas of rich, black fruits are also present, and these are followed through on the seductive,
opulent palate of delicious blackberry and blackcurrant flavors, finishing with some dark chocolate and mocha notes. Concentrated and gloriously rounded with a streak of acidity providing balance and elegance. This
limited edition has the structure and lifted aromas of a young Vintage Port.
The Six Grapes ‘Special Vila Velha Edition’ is a limited bottling drawn exclusively from the finest grapes grown at Quinta da Vila Velha – one of the four Douro estates that supplies Graham’s Port. The property was purchased
by the late third-generation port producer, James Symington, in 1987. For over three decades, James restored and extended the quinta into a well-tended 145-hectare riverside property with 55 hectares under vine. With its privileged position on the south bank of the Douro River, Vila Velha produces well-structured and balanced wines that form key components of Graham’s Vintage Ports.
The Symington family have produced this special edition reserve ruby to mark James’ passing in 2020 and to honor his role in developing Graham’s iconic Six Grapes label. The Six Grapes symbol originated in the 19th
century as the code that Graham’s winemakers used to identify the barrels containing the very best wines from each harvest, which were often bottled as Vintage Port. While over a century later Six Grapes continues to be
Graham’s signature reserve wine, the label had become largely disused in 1970 when the Symington family purchased the port house. James worked tirelessly for over a decade to resuscitate the Six Grapes label. Today,
Graham’s Six Grapes is distributed in 38 markets, with a strong presence in both the on- and off-trade in its top five markets: Portugal, US, UK, Canada & the Netherlands. It is one of the leading ports in the USA.
