Quinta De Chocapalha Castelão 2015

Central and Southern Portugal, PortugalFrom calcareous and clay soils and 29-year-old vines, this Castelão was fermented in stainless steel and then sent to barrel for 1 year before bottling. Still very primary and fruit-forward, with juicy plum, blueberry, earth spliced with a wave of reduction, before settling into a dusky finish. Tannins are sticky, and acidity is bright—a suitable red for cracking alongside burgers or ribs now.Tasted: 03 October 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 21.97 BCLS Producer: Casa Agricola Das MimosasDistributors: Seacove Premium Wines and Spirits
