Tinta Amarela 2012
4, 9 October 2012
Cooperage: French (100%), 100% 2 year old
Tinta Amarela was planted at Abacela over 10 years ago and has stood out year after year for its ripeness and intriguing flavor profile. This motivated the planting of new vineyard blocks with an eye for producing a dry, red table wine. We were rewarded with a wine that is fine in texture and tannins that offers aromas of tangy blueberries, mulberries, mushrooms and rose petals. This leads into complex flavors of dried raspberries, citrus and tea leaf.
