About this product

From a parcel of 45 different old-vine varieties planted mixed in the traditional way, this wine is bold, ripe and richly textured. Partly fermented in open stone lagars, it has a typical, almost Port-like character. Ripe black plums, rich tannins and a great structure all point to medium-term aging potential. Drink from 2022.WE

The 2015 Reserva is a field blend of very old vines (100+ years old), aged for 18 months in an equal blend of new and used barrels. It comes in at 14% alcohol. It is a very elegant Reserva this year, showing the freshness and the elegance of the 2015 vintage with its flavor, too. Gracefully constructed, this will never be the biggest or deepest Reserva, but I suspect it will be one of the friendliest and most popular. It should be approachable young but it will age rather well. Not quite bottled when tasted, this has fine potential.WA
