Florão Tinto 2018

£13.99

Region: Alentejo, Portugal

SKU: 13355 Categories: , , , ,

Description

Grapes: 30% Aragonez, 28% Alicante Biouschet, 25% Alfrocheiro, 8% Field Blend (old vines), 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Syrah, 3% Touriga Nacional

50% of the blend aged 6 months in third and fourth year 400 l French oak barrels.

Herbal aromas of woodland vegetation with hints of pine resin, and background floral notes of rosebushes. Weighty and intense on the palate, a little held back, suggesting good potential for medium-term bottle-ageing. Compact black fruit with a smattering of liquorice and fine, grainy tannins adding a good spicy mouthfeel and a weighty structure, making this wine a great match for rich, savoury dishes.

Ready to drink but will develop favourably in bottle for 3 or 4 years.
