Producer Notes 2017
Chryseia 2017 was made with the finest grapes from Prats & Symington’s own Douro Valley vineyards, Quinta de Roriz and Quinta da Perdiz. As with all previous Chryseia wines, Quinta da Vila Velha, owned by James and Rupert Symington and which neighbours Quinta de Roriz, also contributed for the blend.
Intense color which reflects great concentration.
On the nose the oak is perfectly integrated and the floral notes of the Touriga Nacional combine well with the more balsamic notes of the Touriga Franca. A touch of chocolate on the finish. On the palate the structure is very rich and long. The tannins are round and soft with elegance, minerality and freshness. The finish is very long and aromatic. A wine of great ageing potential, balancing great concentration with elegance and finesse.
