Prunus Dão Tinto 2017

The Dão region is one of the oldest and one of the most complex regions of Portugal. The only one with thick layer of snow during the winter. On the hills of the highest Portuguese mountain Serra de Estrela the vines fight with frost or with baking sun. As an effect Prunus delivers personality, elegance, freshness and softness. The indigenous grapes give aromas and flavours that captivate and seduce and become unmistakable and unforgettable. Yet, the Dão is not only famous for its elegant wines, but also for its succulent and sweet Cova da Beira cherries. These plump and juicy fruits are so revered that entire festivals are created in their honour, which is why this wine has been created with equal expression. Perfect for picnics, Prunus Tinto is light, elegant and reminiscent of these beloved red cherries. A blend of Jaen (80%), Tinta Roriz (10%), Alfrocheiro Preto (5%) and Touriga Nacional (5%) the wine spends 6 months ageing in 225 litre old French and Portuguese oak barrels followed by minimum of 6 months in the bottle prior to release. The finished wine offers elegance on a grand scale. Lightly oaked and perfectly balanced, with a silky texture and crisp edge. The nose is cram-packed with plums, mulberries, blackberries and anise. On the palate, black cherry and raspberry fruit tones with creamy and chocolaty oak flavours. Delicious with poultry and pork dishes.
