Port producer Graham's has declared its 2000 vintage.

In a statement the Port company said that a very low-yielding harvest had produced one of the best vintage Ports for many years.

"There is an evident deep concentration in the wine, with a latent power that promises outstandingly well for the future.

This will also be the first vintage to have been produced using Graham's robotic lagares.

The Symington family, which owns Graham's, has also declared 2000 a vintage year for Dow's, Warre's and Quinta do Vesuvio.
