Quinta Nova Terroir Blend Reserva Red 2016

"A savoury, meaty nose ushers in a rich creamy palate with floral-toned blueberry fruit expanded by supple tannins.  Satisfying and complete". 92 points - Decanter

Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo to give it it's full name is a winery situated in a unique UNESCO landscape, a place of extreme beauty in the heart of Douro valley along the right bank of the river. Owned by Amorim family since 1999, this estate has a history which streches back over 250 years with some original aspects of the winery dating back to 1764, one of the oldest in the Douro. The terroir is stunning, with the vines planted in trellises which head up steep slopes, on unique soil composed of greywachian schist. The vineyard location is perfectly suited to maximise the effects of the Mediterranean micro climate and the hottest and driest winds, which help to ripen the grapes and concentrate the juices.

Tasting Notes

A deep muscular blend of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão and Tinta Roriz with an intense dark red/purple colour. The nose is complex wih aromas of wild berry, cassis and blueberry laced with white pepper spice and oak. The firm tannins give a wonderful texture and structure to what is a rich and vibrant wine with plenty of juicy plum and a long enjoyable finish. Lots of aging potential here. Drink with rich, meaty dishes.
