Tasting notes

Douro Chryseia opens with a whole cluster of blackberries, ripe plums, blackcurrant, plus some hints of vanilla. Bold, spicy and elegant attack with notes of black fruits, eucalyptus, spices and red cedar. Complex and intense in the mid palate with a clean and long finish.

Portugal

Douro

Douro region enjoys great history and fame for fortified wines, but is now also renowned for its fine wines thanks to massive improvements in the last two decades.This wine region takes its name from the Douro river in Northern Portugal. In Spain this river is named Duero and flows through the famous vineyard of Ribera del Duero.

Prats + Symington

Moderate mountain climate

Prats and Symington

The soils in the Douro Valley are made up of schist, a slate-like metamorphic rock. The numerous valleys, from Mesão Frio to the Spanish border are rich in nutrients with great water retention properties. The interstices of foliated schistose rock retain a large amount of humidity, allowing the vine to thrive in the arid conditions which prevail for most of the summer. The hard blue schist, in the Douro Superior, yellow schist or granite give the vines the ability to thrive well.
