2015 Chryseia, Prats & Symington, Douro Valley, Portugal
Chryseia 2015 was produced from the finest quality grapes from Prats and Symington's two Upper Douro Valley vineyards, Quinta de Roriz and Quinta da Perdiz. Another property, Quinta da Vila Velha, which is privately owned by a member of the Symington family, also contributed some of its best grapes, as it has for every vintage of Chryseia.
Very deep purple colour. Rich and complex aromas of dark plum and black cherries with some subtle toasted notes. Well structured on the palate with lithe, albeit assertive tannins, which underscore the wine’s ageing potential. The finish has a long aftertaste of attractive, supple fruit.
