CHRYSEIA RED 2016

The Chryseia 2016 was made from a judicious selection of grapes sourced from Prats & Symington’s own upper Douro Valley vineyards of Quinta de Roriz and Quinta da Perdiz. The Quinta da Vila Velha vineyard, privately owned by a member of the Symington family, and which borders Roriz, also made a contribution as it has done in every preceding Chryseia wine.

The Chryseia 2016 was made from a judicious selection of grapes sourced from Prats & Symington’s own upper Douro Valley vineyards of Quinta de Roriz and Quinta da Perdiz. The Quinta da Vila Velha vineyard, privately owned by a member of the Symington family, and which borders Roriz, also made a contribution as it has done in every preceding Chryseia wine.

The incredible terroir of Quinta de Roriz is itself a prevalent factor in the quality and style of Chryseia’s wines. The timely rainfall registered in late August and early September proved instrumental in creating ideal conditions for the final ripening stage, which was also favoured by perfect warm and dry vintage conditions. The grapes were received in the winery at Roriz with a textbook balance of sugars, phenolics and acidity, such as we have rarely seen before.

BRUNO PRATS TASTING NOTE: Very dark and intense colour. Rich fruity nose of black cherries, dark plum, chocolate, with well-integrated and discreet oak. Very rich structure on the palate with great freshness and minerality. The velvety tannins are long, supple and elegant. Lengthy and lingering creamy finish. A wine with great ageing potential.
