Churchill's Grafite Tinta Roriz 2019

Churchill's Grafite Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) is made exclusively from Tinta Roriz grapes grown on the family's own estate vineyards in the Douro Valley. The grapes are hand-picked into small boxes of approx. 20 kilos and brought to the winery where they undergo a careful selection process before being crushed. The vinification takes place in small stainless steel fermentation tanks. The grapes are fully destemmed and crushed. The juice is gently pumped over the skins during fermentation which is long and even ensuring good aromatic and polyphenolic extraction. About 30% of this wine is aged for 12 months in both new and old French oak casks; the remaining part is kept in stainless steel vats to maintain its fruity character combined with the oak complexity from the wines in casks. It is fined and lightly filtered before bottling. Deep black cherry in the Grafite Tinta Roriz is wild and seductive on the nose, with intense aromas of black pepper, dry spices, and menthol. Vinous and well-structured on the palate, with notes of black cherries and dark chocolate ending with well-defined acidity and a dry finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
