Six Grapes is one of Graham's original Port blends. The rather curious and primitive depiction of bunches of grapes on the label has always been used on the cask ends to identify the “Six Grapes” blend. In the Graham's stocks a bunch of grapes signifies a wine of Vintage quality and amongst these the six bunches denote the fact that this is the darkest and most full-bodied wine. Only grapes from firstclass
vineyards are used for this mark. Dark red colour, with a seductive rich perfume of ripe plums and cherries. On the palate, complex, with a good structure and a long lingering finish.
"Ripe and opulent plummy fruit on the nose, big and bold. Well extracted deep fruits on the palate framed by well balanced tannins and freshness. The name of this wine refers not to the number of varieties in it but the secret Graham’s code winemakers chalked on to barrels to describe their contents – the best, vintage Port-quality wines were marked with six grapes. This is a bright, fresh, juicy Port, full of spiced dark fruit and grippy tannins. Top value."
