Quinta do Crasto Tinta Roriz

Douro DOC, Douro Valley

Released only in the finest years, this wine is made with 100% Tinta Roriz. Vivid and deep in color with intense ripe fruit aromas and notes of oak. Soft and round on the palate, very well balanced. A long and lingering finish.

Tasting Notes

Deep purple in color. The nose shows a perfect balance between aromas of fresh spice, gum cistus, and wild berry fruit. Balanced on the palate, evolving into a powerful wine that shows red berry fruit flavors, excellent volume, and firm, textured tannins. This is an engaging, food-friendly wine, with a fresh, lingering finish.

Adverse weather conditions made 2016 a complex year. The winter saw generous levels of rainfall, far above the average for the last thirty years. It was also warmer than usual through the end of January.  The rain continued into early spring, but it was accompanied by a considerable fall in temperatures that slowed the growth of the vines. July and August were extremely hot and dry. The rainy winter had provided abundant water reserves that yielded lush vines with excellent canopies. The grapes were ripening well, if slowly. Quinta do Crasto saw 18mm of rain on 24 and 25 August, which was of great benefit to the vines. This, together with a fall in temperatures in early September, gave rise to the perfect ripening of the grapes.

The grapes, coming from the best Tinta Roriz plots of Quinta do Crasto, are brought to the winery in 22 kg boxes where they undergo strict selection. After complete destemming and slight crushing, the juice is transferred to temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. Once the alcoholic fermentation is completed, the juice is gently pressed. Aging: Between 16 and 18 months, in oak barrels - 90% in new French oak barrels; 10% in second use oak barrels.

2015 was a dry but well-balanced year that was saved by the right amount of rainfall at exactly the right moment. July and August were mild, with hot days and cold nights, which had a positive influence on the ripening of the grapes. The white grape harvest began on 21 August and the first red wine grapes arrived in the winery from the Quinta da Cabreira in the Douro Superior on 29 August. Weather conditions throughout the harvest were favourable. Rain on 15 and 16 September favoured the final ripening of the grapes of some vineyard plots. The three plots of 32-year-old Tinta Roriz vines, with their east, south, and west aspects present an interesting challenge to the viticulture and winemaking teams when it comes to choosing the exact moment to harvest each one. 2015 was no exception. On September 6, the west facing vineyard was the first to be picked, followed by those facing south and east, respectively. This is a year whose wines stand out for their generous fruit, natural freshness and extraordinary elegance.

The grapes, coming from the best Tinta Roriz plot of Quinta do Crasto, are taken to the winery in 22 kg plastic boxes and rigorously inspected on arrival. The grapes are first trodden in a traditional stone tank (lagar) and after this, they are transferred into an open stainless steel tank where the cap is pressed down with robotic pistons. Fermentation takes place for 10 days under strict controlled temperature environment. Once the alcoholic fermentation is completed, the grape are gently pressed using hydraulic presses. Aging: In new French oak barrels.
