Pereira D'Oliveiras


Tinta Negra Medium-Sweet 5 year old


A similar nose to the medium dry version, but deeper and darker: old dried brown dates with grilled bread and caramelised honey heading in the toffee direction. There's a lovely, heady lift of rainforest timbers. Medium-sweet it is, with heightened grapiness and a lovely sense of juicy attack, but dried off by terrific fruit tannin and smoky vine canes. It's rainwater fresh to finish with a lovely rear-guard of enlivening acidity.
