Tasting Note

This wine takes its name from the location of the vineyard from which the grapes come: Douro Superior (Upper Douro). The grapes used to make this wine come from our property Quinta da Cabreira where we have 114 hectares of recently planted vines. Crasto Superior Syrah shows well-integrated aromas, fresh berry fruit and notes of chocolate. Engaging beginning, leading to a wine with great volume and a good structure made of fresh and finely-textured tannins. The finish is perfectly balanced and lingering.

Winemaking

The grapes, coming from our experimental plantings of Syrah established in 2004 in our property Quinta da Cabreira in the Douro Superior
sub-region, were taken to the winery in plastic boxes and rigorously inspected on a sorting table on arrival. The grapes were then completely
destemmed and slightly crushed. After this, the juice was transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel vats where it underwent a cold
maceration for 5 days. The alcoholic fermentation took place for 10 days, and was followed by a gentle pressing, and malolactic fermentation in
French oak barrels. 16 months in French oak barrels.

Press

  • ‘Bright fruit on the nose, cassis and French oak, then a very juicy palate with notes of spice and a lovely balancing touch of bitterness on the finish,’ said Antoine Cabre of Spring Restaurant.
