This is a soft-bodied red blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz. It is light in texture, with acidity cutting through the solid tannins. Drink now.
This is a soft, fruity wine. It has a light touch that gives it a tangy character, leaving a fresh aftertaste.
The 2018 harvest is more viscous than in previous years. That’s because of the wet-stone fruit and acidity that is ripe and generous. Yet it has a dry core that’s still firm with the acidity from the wood. It is still a young, fruity wine, ready to drink from 2017.
The thoroughness and intensity of this wine is enhanced by the dramatic variety. The red-berry fruits, with a touch of cinnamon and vanilla, are tart and fresh, with a lightly mineral texture. The acidity is on the finish, just hinting at a drying.
Aromas of ripe fruit, spice, baking spice and vanilla are pleasant. The palate shows a slightly sweet, oily mouthfeel, while flavors of black plum, plum and spice finish with a touch of oak. Drink now.
This is a fruity wine that has ripe red fruits and a dry core that gives it a dry, spicy aftertaste. The acidity is still very evident, so it needs time to become rich, so wait for this to mature. Drink from 2017.
