2017 Post Scriptum, Prats & Symington, Douro Valley, Portugal
Prats & Symington was founded in 1999 as a joint venture between the well known Bordeaux winemaker, Bruno Prats and the Symington family. It is an independent company specialising in dry red wines which has been at the forefront of the DOC Douro quality revolution and instrumental in driving forward the high quality image of the region.
Post Scriptum is a partner wine to Chryseia, its profile is similar: expressive, fresh, concentrated fruit married to exquisite balance and elegance, it is ready to enjoy from a younger age.
The grapes are sorted by hand before undergoing destemming and an automated berry selection process. They are then gently crushed before being transfered to the fermentation vats where they are inoculated with a specially selected yeast culture and fermented at 25C. During fermentation, the wines are gently macerated in order to produce an earlier drinking wine but with the ability to mature in bottle.
