Wiese and Krohn Vintage 2003 Douro, Portugal

Traditional grape varieties are sourced from the Quinta do Retiro estate and neighbouring growers in the Rio Torto Valley. Here old vines are planted in schistous soils. Fermentation is in open granite tanks called 'lagares', where the grapes are trodden by foot. Fermentation is interrupted by the addition of grape spirit to preserve a certain degree of natural sweetness. Aged for around 2 years in 547 litre oak barrels (the traditional 'pipe') and larger casks. Then bottled (unfiltered) and aged for several more years before release.

Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesca, Tinta Barroca. A deep and youthful colour, with little development. The nose has intense plum and cherry, with sweet spices and hints of vanilla. The palate has more structure from fresh concentrated plum and cherry flavours and mirrors the nose with layers of fruit and spice. It is drinking well now, but still has many years ahead. Great with blue and mature cheese, with nuts.
