Port is a fortified wine produced exclusively in the Douro valley in northern Portugal, named after the town of Porto. The wine produced is fortified by adding aguardente, a neutral grape spirit, and is then aged in barrels stored in a cave.

Graham’s LBV has attractive liquorice and floral aromas, and fresh blackberry flavours. It also, like the Six Grapes, has hints of the native Gum Cistus plant, which grows around the vineyards in the Douro, imparting very subtle aromas of mint to the wine. Its rich concentration of ripe fruit is balanced by the added complexity of spices, all held together by superb structure and balance.
The Fine White is a slightly sweeter blend than the Extra Dry. This is achieved by fermenting the grape must for a slightly shorter time to preserve the natural sugars in the fruit, which give the Fine White its flavours of honey and nectar and its slightly richer amber hue. It has sweet citrus characteristics and maintains a good balance of freshness and delicacy. It should be served chilled, between 6 and 10º Celsius.
