Wine Crasto Superior Syrah Red 2019 75cl
Region: Douro, Portugal
97% Syrah; 3% Viognier
The grapes, from our Quinta da Cabreira in Douro Superior, were transported in plastic food boxes and subjected to a rigorous sorting at the entrance to the winery. After total destemming and slight crushing, the must was transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel fermentation vats.
Aged in French oak barrels, where it remained for about 16 months.
With a deep ruby color, it presents intense aromas of forest flowers in harmony with soft notes of spice. In the mouth it starts with excellent volume, proving to be a wine with a serious structure, composed of tannins with a fine and persistent texture. An engaging wine that very well reflects the typicality of the Syrah variety and ends with excellent freshness and persistence.
Quinta do Crasto has more than 400 years of history, part of which is documented.
Going through the creation of Álvaro Moreira da Fonseca’s “Method for the Distribution of the Benefit of Port Wine”.
