A deliciously indulgent palate of spiced hedgerow fruit, liquorice and black cherry, with a hint of rose petals and orange peel on the nose

Quinta do Ataide 2016

£16.99Price
  • When the Symington family purchased Quinta do Ataíde in 2010 they immediately recognised the potential of the terroir and its surrounding vineyards. Part of the reason for this potential  was the region’s unique micro-climate, which is generated by two granite escarpments that form the ‘Vilariça basin’ creating a special set of viticultural conditions that are not found elsewhere in the region. 

    Made from  carefully blended Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cão grapes, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 10 months.

    Floral aromas, notably of roses (reflecting the important Touriga Nacional component), as well as resin and pine needle notes, which give the wine a balsamic fragrance. On the palate, red fruits combine with fleshy, black plum flavours with the slightest hint of wood — beautifully integrated. Full-bodied and substantial, the structure balances power and elegance.
