Abastado Grande Reserva Tinto DOC Douro Gesprove, 2013
An immensely appealing wine with bags of personality. It is intense in colour with a warming mellow bouquet with dark fruits, a hint of fresh leather and warm puppy. It is soft and smooth, rich and full-bodied. Supple fruit and black cherry flavours are complemented by smoke and soot. It has a fine texture and is delicious to drink now with the potential for some cellaring. The majority of the blend is 80% Touriga Nacional with 19% Souzão and 1% Touriga Franca grown on terraced schist soils in the Douro Superior sub-region. Grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented at 22 to 25°C. The wine was matured in new French oak barrels for twelve months and was bottled in June 2015.
