Quinta da Pellada - Alvarelhao,Tinta Pinheira,Touriga Nacional,Tinta Amarela,others 2014
Producer: Quinta da Pellada
Wine name: Vinho Tinto
ABV: 13.0

Despite 2014 being a rather fresh year, this wine already feels seriously aged – it’s a bit dusty and clearly evolved, with some baked plum and a bit of christmas spice. There’s a lot of complexity to the nose and the palate.

The fruit is tinged with herbal notes, some wax and quite a tangy, herbaceous character. But there is a real feeling that this is heading over the hill – it’s starting to lose freshness, and that’s a surprise for Dão and this vintage.

Definitely not one to cellar – drink now!
