Winemaker's Notes:

Whereas Vintage Port spends only two years in casks and then matures in bottle, LBV is aged solely in cask and then bottled at between four and six years old. At the time of bottling it has completed its maturation and is ready for drinking without the need for decanting. Grahams LBV has much of the rich full fruity flavour and grip of Vintage Port, combining this with a softness gained through oak ageing.

About Graham's:

W & J Graham's was founded in Porto in 1820. Renowned worldwide for outstanding its Vintage Ports, Graham’s also produces a range of Aged Tawny Ports, Late Bottled Vintage, Reserve and Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Ports. Graham’s growing success in the 19th Century resulted in the acquisition of the famous Quinta dos Malvedos in the Alto Douro and in the construction of the imposing Graham’s 1890 Lodge. Overlooking the twin cities of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, the Graham’s Lodge houses over 3,500 seasoned oak casks of Port, numerous large oak vats and an extensive Vintage Port cellar. Graham’s is now owned and run by the Symington family, Port producers for four generations.
