HOMENAGEM A BARÃO VON FURSTENBERG

30,00 

58% Merlot, 42% Touriga Nacional 2015

Description

Ageing:

24 months in 30% new French oak barrels and 70% in second or third year French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:

The Dedication wine to Ann’s father Baron Gustav von Furstenberg is back with the 2015 vintage. We make this wine only in exceptional vintages and where the blend of Touriga Nacional and Merlot evolves in a manner akin to Bordeaux. Cassis, violets and blackcurrants alongside green bell pepper and earthy pine forests. Balanced integrated oak and tannins, with a backbone of acidity that keeps this wine lifted and promises to do so for a long while.
