MAYFLOWER 2016 Vinho Regional Alentejano
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer FLOR DE MAIO
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. This juicy, somewhat rustic blend of Trincadeira, Aragonez and Syrah has a deep intense purple colour. The nose is slightly spicy with bright, ripe plum-raspberry fruit. Itís fairly dry, medium bodied and quite well structured with bright, ripe plummy-cherry flavours and a fairly crisp, faintly rustic finish with some earthy-sandalwood notes. A casual, ready-to-drink red, it has 13% alcohol and 8 g/L residual sugar with lot number L26023 on the back label. The 2012 (*+/**) was released on January 23, 2016 at $13.95. CSPC 427195
