Description
Quinta Meandro do Vale began in the late 1800s as the passion project of Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, owner of the largest winemaking estate in the Douro at that time. Her great-great-great-grandson Francisco Javier de Olazabal has managed the estate since the 1970s. This wine blends 38% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz and a handful of other varieties, all trodden by foot in the old-school way before being vinified in stainless steel and aged in French Allier oak barriques. Look for a complex array of dark berry and plum fruits, spices, and tarry notes.
Tasting Notes
This huge value is an impressive blend of five native varieties led by the always fragrant touriga nacional. Love the young floral violet/peony notes, red plum and mulberry with background oak spice and stoniness. It is rich, with lovely fruit sweetness and concentrated yet very refined with fine minerality and acidity. The tannins are equally refined and the flavours hit excellent with a lovely evergreen note on the finish. Stony as well. Best 2015 to 2024. Tasted October 2013. Score - 94.
