Only about 35% of the production of these five top quality Douro estates is set aside to be potential Vintage Port, and only about 10% reaches the final Vintage Port bottling, most of the remaining quantity going into the Six Grapes blend, probably more correctly described in style as ‘declassified Vintage Port’ although officially designated as a Reserve Ruby. In terms of varietals, Six Grapes is made primarily of the four uncontested ‘stars’ of the Port region, the violety and aromatic Touriga Franca, the rich, tannic and well structured Touriga Nacional, the raspberry tinged Tinta Roriz and the sweet chocolatey Tinta Barroca. In addition there are components of Tinta Amarela, Tinta Cão, Souzão and Tinta Francisca as well as grapes from some older mixed plantings. At all Graham’s Quintas, each varietal is picked according to its ideal ripeness, and the fermentations of each varietal and vineyard block kept separate, for blending together only much later once the wines have been properly assessed for their individual characteristics.
