Quinta do Espinho, Grande Reserva, Douro Valley, 2015
(at Weekend Wines Tasting, 25 Jan 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2030
An accomplished Douro blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz, aged for 12 months in new French oak. Intense, harmonious. perfumed aromatics: black berries and black cherry with top notes of violet. There's impressive depth of black fruit on the palate, interlaced with spice, savoury and chocolate hints, plus freshness and a sense of minerality. Fine tannins with a framework that will ensure further evolution as this ages in bottle.
