Tasting Notes

Aromas of pine forest with hints of resin, pine needles and a touch of mint. Also on the nose, berry fruits and black plum. Very fine textured in the mouth with delicious, bright flavors of blackberries and a slight suggestion of liquorice, perhaps from the wine’s sizable Syrah component. On the mid-palate there are fine-grained tannins and some tension from the good acidity that underscores the wine’s freshness and balance. The long aftertaste suggests some promising aging potential.

Vineyard Notes

The 511-acre Quinta da Fonte Souto was acquired by the Symington family in 2017. Lying on the slopes of the São Mamede mountain range at an altitude of 1640 feet in the Alentejo sub-region of Portalegre.
