The Chryseia 2008 was made from a judicious selection of grapes chosen from the vineyards of Perdiz, Vila Velha, Vesuvio and Bomfim. Of the 150,000 kgs of grapes vinified, a rigorous selection of the resulting wines led to the bottling of 33,945 bottles of Chryseia. The wine was bottled in November 2009.

GRAPE VARIETIES:
50% Touriga Nacional, 50% Touriga Franca. The Touriga Nacional was sourced from Vila Velha, Bomfim and Vesuvio, whilst the Touriga Franca was drawn from Vila Velha and Perdiz.

TASTING NOTES:
Deep intense color. Very fragrant aromas. Discreet toastiness with fresh aromas of black cherries and red fruits and a hint of licorice. On the palate, supple, generous and inviting. The powerful tannins are coated in delicious expressive fruit of great finesse. The finish is tender, silky and very long. A wine of great elegance.
