Quinta Do Vale Meão

Douro Valley

'Estate' Tinto 2018


55% Touriga Nacional, 35% Touriga Franca, with Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca. Foot trodden in lagares for 4 hours, then vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. Grape varieties are vinified separately, then blended and aged in Allier barriques.

Meão follows 'Meandro's' themes, with a purple fruit spectrum of baked cherries and India ink, blue flowers, boysenberry, and lavender held deep in dark-spiced flashing Douro minerality. It's a fabulous wine of marvellously controlled lushness.
