The idea behind Drink Me is the creation of a pleasant, easy drinking red wine yet keeping complexity, mineral notes and great depth, like a classic Douro wine.
Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and others grown on schist with an average vine age of 10 to 40 years. 12 months in French oak barrels (20%) and stainless steel vats (80%).
Very vivid ruby color, of medium concentration. Vibrant in the nose, scented with a fresh and very expressive aroma in the wild fruit notes. Spices and tea leaves harmoniously linked with a balsamic profile, originate a complex and captivating aroma. In the mouth, more elegant than the previous edition, has a markedly mineral profile. With a good mouth volume, young, with good acidity and soft tannins, is a feel like tasting wine, without being heavy thanks to its balance. Long finish, with a very refreshing mineral flavour.
