Tasting Notes: Six Grapes Special ‘River Quintas’ Edition pays homage to the original Six Grapes label, our signature Reserve blend. We chose two classic riverside vineyard sites for this special blend, the first being the nineteenth century stone terraces at Graham’s Quinta do Tua, which are remarkable for the sheer thickness of their schist walls. The over fifty year-old mixed varietal plantings from this vineyard, typically picked early in the harvest, consistently produce outstanding results, with minimal average yields of 0.65 kg of grapes per vine. We managed to make outstandingly concentrated Ports from this vineyard.

Deep bluish-purple colour, as opaque as a young Vintage Port. Aromas of blackberry and cassis with hints of mint and eucalyptus, ending on a note of tar and spice. Concentrated on the palate; dark plum, liquorice and chocolate flavours, balanced by a wonderful fresh acidity and a persistent, taut finish.

Varietal: Port Wine

Pairing: This exceptional Port will delight at the end of a meal, served with rich, nutty or chocolate desserts as well as a variety of cheeses, including blue cheese. Alternatively, it may be enjoyed on its own; it is a dessert in itself. The wine will keep for several weeks after opening and is best served slightly chilled.
