About

90

The second wine, in the Bordeaux fashion, from Quinta de Roriz, this is a smoothly textured, rich wine. Tannins are fully integrated in the luscious black fruits and balanced acidity. The wine is developing well and will be ready to drink from 2021.

Product Description:

"The hand-picked grapes for Prazo de Roriz are placed in small, shallow containers and on arrival at the Quinta de Roriz winery the bunches are manually sorted, after which the berries undergo an automated selection process to ensure that only grapes in ideal condition reach the stainless steel vats. Following gentle crushing, fermentation is induced through inoculation with a specially selected yeast culture and proceeds at temperatures between 22 and 24°C. Gentle macerations are favoured in order to produce fresh and fruity wines, approachable from a young age whilst retaining good ageing potential."- Winery
