COLHEITA SELECIONADA 2017 DOC D„o
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CABRIZ
More great everyday drinking value from Portugalís Dao region. Deep purple colour, the nose is fairly intense and slightly spicy with fresh ripe plum-cherry notes along with a touch of oak and black licorice. Dry, medium bodied and quite well structured with slightly spicy, bright, ripe, plummy-cherry-apple flavours with a lingering, faintly cedary finish. Ready-to-drink, this blend of 40% Alfrocheiro, 40% Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo) and 20% Touriga Nacional was aged in equal parts French oak and stainless steel for six months. It has 13% alcohol and 6 g/L residual sugar with lot number L56112K2 on the back label. CSPC 247973
