Description

The Fonte Souto Estate red wine embodies all the strengths of the property’s unique terroir: the freshness and balance afforded by the altitude; the concentration, which derives from mature, low-yielding vines, and the complexity and structure provided by the judicious combination of grape varieties. This red is built around Syrah and Alicante Bouschet with smaller contributions from Alfrocheiro and old vines (field blend).

Aromas of pine forest with hints of resin, pine needles and a touch of mint. Also on the nose, berry fruits and black plum. Very fine textured in the mouth with delicious, bright flavours of blackberries and a slight suggestion of liquorice, perhaps from the wine’s sizeable Syrah component. On the midpalate there are fine-grained tannins and some tension from the good acidity that underscores the wine’s freshness and balance. The long aftertaste suggests some promising ageing potential.
