Quinta do Javali 'Clos Fonte do Santo' Cherry Tree Vineyard, Douro, Portugal 2019
A mix of about 20 old vine grape varieties this wine light ruby in color, such as the color of the red cherry. Exuberant and appealing nose. The aromas of red fruits dominate with a balanced maturation, without being exaggerated. Ripe notes of black fruit and a mineral "nerve" from the typical terroir of Clos Fonte de Santo. The freshness reflects the influence of the location of these vines on a cooler terrain. The fruity notes, which are allied to the vibrant minerality, provide a proof marked by lightness.
Pairing: Grilled Portuguese Style Chicken, Pork with Palourdes, pulled pork
Grapes: Field Blend from old vines in the Douro
