Tinta Amarela 2015

Winemaker Notes


Tinta Amarela is a rare grape that excels at Abacela to produce a wine that is fine in texture and tannin. It offers up aromas of tangy blueberries, mulberries, vanilla bean and rose petals. This leads into complex flavors of dried raspberries, cherries and tea leaf.
