This tempranillo-based blend is built for pleasure. Fruity berries and spice, subtle notes of vanilla and toast from a small proportion of barrel aging, with very elegant and discreet minerality. The Beyra Reserva Tinto is good to go now, but has an excellent structure for a short stint in the cellar. A bit of sediment from it's natural manufacture would suggest this is best decanted.
This wine is deep ruby in colour with an intense and complex aroma, notes of black and red berries, pepper and pine needles are present along with attractive and well-integrated oak characters. On the palate, it has good body and acidity, high quality tannins, black fruit flavours and a hint of cocoa on the long and elegant finish.
This wine has a deep ruby colour and intense aromas of flowers, strawberry and raspberry fruit, a touch of black pepper and well-integrated oak. The voluminous palate has well-integrated acidity, velvety tannins, a delicate minerality and notes of red berries. The finish is elegant and long.
The wine has a lively, compelling aroma of strawberries, blackberries and plums combined with balsamic nuances. It is medium-bodied, with round tannins and a balanced, lively acidity, which make this an extremely appealing wine that can be served as an aperitif or with main courses.
A blend that changes slightly each year, the last few vintages of this wine have been on fire. Beautifully defined dark fruit (there always seems to be a generous lick of cassis in this wine, even when the Cabernet component is actually quite modest), just a frame of toasty oak (although that roasted Alentejo character amalgamates with that too), and just enough Alicante crunch to keep it all fres…
Despite containing only 10% Syrah, it has that trademark Syrah earthiness on the nose. Tightly wound, crisp and earthy, it is beautifully wrought and quite age worthy. Juicy and remarkably flavourful on the finish, thanks to the acidity.
The 2016 Petit Verdot is a great variety of strong individual personality and enormous quality potential. Best known for its presence in small proportion in the blends of the great wines of the M�doc. It needs sunshine and heat to ripen fully, and has adapted extremely well to the Douro to produce a varietal wine of exuberant character and individuality.
