Azueira Capricho do Rei Syrah Tinto 2019

Azueira Capricho do Rei Syrah Tinto is a harmonious, elegant and fraught wine. Bright red colour. Intense aroma of mature wild berries with balsamic notes. Complex taste with soft tannins and a lingering finish.

100% Syrah. The fruit comes from vineyards in the Lisbon area, Portugal's capital. The vines experience a temperate Mediterranean climate with the influence of Atlantic breezes. The area's originally Jurassic and cretaceous soils results in a clay-limestone soil composition, perfect for the production of wines with good sugar content. 

Hand harvesting of the fruit. Prolonged post-fermentative maceration of 30 days with application of selected yeasts and pectolytic extraction enzymes.
