TERRAS DE VIRIATO RESERVA 2014 DO Dão
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CAMPELO
How can a 2014 Dão red be fresh, ripe and ready-to-drink? The secret: keeping in stainless steel as soon as the wine finishes its one year of oak aging and possibly, topping up with up to 20% of fresher, more youthful wine. Fairly deep purple red colour. Fairly juicy, fruity, ripe, plum-cherry nose with a touch of minerals and sandalwood. Dry, medium bodied, tangy, fairly fresh, ripe, plummy-cherry flavours with a crisp, fairly high acid, faintly cedary finish. This tasty blend of 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Roriz, 20% Jaen and 10% Alfrocheiro has 13% alcohol and 3 g/L residual sugar with lot number L19333 on the back label meaning that this batch was bottled on Friday, November 30, 2019. You can safely ignore the 2017 tasting note appearing in the Vintages Catalogue. Has not appeared in Vintages before. CSPC 12712
