90 POINTS: Mark Squires – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
Churchill-Graham was founded by Johnny Graham in 1981, scion of the famous Graham Port house. The house carries his wife’s surname ‘Churchill’ after which the Ports are named. Churchill Graham has also been one of the protagonists of modern Douro Valley wine, made with the indigenous and noble red varieties, offering much greater accessibility to the wider international market. These wines under the ‘Churchill Estates’ banner have quickly gained a following for their unique character, not only from the varieties used, but also their expression of place. The company has various tiers from the fruit-expressive wines to single quinta bottlings - designed to age.
