Quinta Do Judeu 2014

24.00

Description

Muscular, structured wine with a bouquet of crushed violets, coffee and black fruits. The palate is intense and complex, with lively acidity and assertive tannins balancing juicy notes of bitter chocolate, grilled meat and leather.  A lengthy finish frames the wine perfectly. Quinta do Judeu’s flagship red is made from fully fifteen different varieties, the vines of which are 60 years old. Grapes were trodden by bare human foot, before fermentation and maturation for 12 months in French oak barrel.

Decant for a few hours and enjoy with t-bone steak.

Producer: Quinta Do Judeu

Quinta do Judeu, which dates from 1932, takes its name from the Roman-Jewish statue that keeps watch from its roof. The small, modern and immaculately kept winery sits below the home of owner and winemaker André Marinho Pinto and his family.

The breathtakingly scenic estate spans 27 hectares across three vineyards on the steep slopes of the Douro river, planted solely to Port grapes and with vines ranging in age from 10 to over 90 years old. The terraced, vertiginous slopes that characterise the Douro region are composed of tough schist and granite; mean, harsh soils to make the vines work harder for nutrients.

    "Savoury, spicy notes on the nose with some chocolate and vanilla, as well as some subtle balsamic notes. Perfumed, floral and taut. The palate shows sweet raspberry, red cherry and plum fruit with a keen, savoury, spicy edge and some grippy structre."
