Prats & Symington Douro Chryseia 2008
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.
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.
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.
