Quinta Do Crasto Douro Red 2016 (1x75cl)

The vineyards here are planted on terraces with rows of vines planted up and down the slope on shist soil. The aspect is south-east facing and the age of the vines is 20+ years.

The grapes, chosen from selected plots, were taken to the winery in 22 kg plastic boxes. On arrival in the winery they were rigorously inspected on a sorting table. The grapes were then destemmed and crushed and transferred into stainless steel tanks where they fermented. The alcoholic fermentation took place in temperaturecontrolled stainless steel tanks for 5 to 7 days. The wine was matured 95% in stainless steel vats and 5% in oak barrels.

Dark ruby in colour. The aromas are really expressive, with notes of fresh red fruit and violets. Seductive on the palate, with flavours of ripe berries and spices, complimented by the well-integrated tannins.
