O Produtor, tasting note published in April 30th 2019
With a bright yellow straw color, this wine reveals expressive aromas of passion fruit and pineapple with a subtle note of vanilla. Exuberant and fresh in the mouth, it presents precise citrus flavors, conjugated with green apple and a touch of honey.
Vinification: After destemming and soft crushing of the grapes, a brief skin maceration allows to optimize the extraction of desirable aromatic compounds and precursors. Following clarification, the must is fermented in stainless steel vats, with controlled temperature. Stage: 3 months in stainless steel vats, with minimal contact with oxygen, in order to preserve all the aromatic freshness of the wine.
Symington Family Estates
There is a natural affinity between wine and family. Long-term vision and commitment through many generations are essential for the success of a family wine company. A newly planted vineyard takes time to produce great wines and often requires a lifetime’s work to yield best results. The Symington family, with Scottish, English and Portuguese ancestry has been present in the Douro for five generations — since 1882 — and through the current generation’s great grandmother, the family’s links to the wines of the Douro span 14 generations, to the mid-17th century and to the very beginnings of the history of Port.
