Late Bottle Vintage Port

Graham's LBV 2009 reflects the unique flavours of Graham's five mountain vineyards in this exceptional year. Aged in seasoned oak in our 1890 Lodge since shortly after the harvest, this elegant and full bodied Port Wine is now ready to be enjoyed. Charles Symington, Graham's Head Winemaker and António Monteiro, Cellar Master, have personally selected each barrel of this Port Wine. Recommended with strong cheeses or with dark chocolate. No decanting is required.

Vinification Details

LBV is aged in casks and then bottled at between four and six years of age. This wood-ageing encourages the wine's development and thus, at the time of bottling, it has completed its maturation and is ready for drinking, without the need for decanting.

History

Founded in 1820 by W&J Graham's in Portugal's Douro valley, Graham's has developed over time an unmatched reputation as one of the greatest names in Port. For nearly two hundred years its Ports have been made by just two families, the Grahams (founders), and the Symingtons, owners of Graham's since 1970 and dedicated all the way through five generations to craft amazing Ports.

Regional Information

Graham's Ports rely on the choice of the finest quality grapes, coming primarily from 5 Quintas in the upper Douro valley: Quinta dos Malvedos, Quinta do Tua, Quinta das Lages (in the Rio Torto) and two others, Quinta da Vila Velha and Quinta do Vale de Malhadas, privately owned by a member of the Symington family. These Quintas enjoy an ideal combination of a hot & dry micro-climate, coupled with a unique schist soil that provide the best conditions for growing and optimal ripening.
