Symington Family Estates is a wine company and Port wine house in Portugal, which owns and operates several vineyards and wineries and owns several brands of Port, this wine is a special edition of 2015 Late Bottled Vintage to mark the extraordinary landmark of Graham’s Bicentenary.
“This 2017 Late Bottled Vintage Port was produced from grapes sourced from four of Graham’s vineyards located in various prime sites in the mountainous Douro Valley.
The year was exceptionally dry and hot, and this led to a very early vintage with incredibly low yields. The low yields translated into intense and concentrated wines, rich and opulent — beautifully balanced by the freshness provided by excellent acidities — such as the quality, that Graham’s declared a classic Vintage Port from 2017. Following on from the 2015 Bicentenary LBV edition the new colors of the tubes pay homage to 2017 as a year that was declared Vintage, these colors will carry on until the next LBV year coincides with a declared Vintage Year.
The tubes were designed using handcrafted marbled paper which reflects the craft and attention to detail of the brand and builds on our heritage in honoring the craftsmanship that goes into producing wines of such consistent quality. The front and back labels are adorned with beautifully embossed detail inspired by a combination of Porto’s wrought iron balconies and traditional Portuguese tiles (azulejos) to evoke memories of Porto’s charming streets.” Source: www.grahams-port.com
