Manz Duoro Reserva
Region: Duoro, Portugal
This ícon represents all the exhuberance that the Douro Region has to offer. A robust wine with a fabulous structure, well balanced by the 12 months oak stage. To those “oaky” aromas and flavors, ripe fruit and country flowers are combined for a great bouquet.
A great wine and a long aging capability, make this numbered and limited edition, a real collector’s item.
With soils of Xist in a Continental Atlantic climate, winemaker Ricardo Noronha, has the grapes fully destemmed, then following the fermentation, done separately for each grape for 8 days in stainless steel vats, at controlled temperature. Matured and aged for 21 months in 1st use french oak barrels and 24 months in stainless steel vats.
This full bodied and structured wine with silky tannins and a great balance between the floral notes and the fruity aromas gives a completed complexity given by the oak stage. There are hints of spices and wild berries on the nose with a structured, dense and silky palate. The fine tannins harmonize with the fruit in a wide and pleasant tasting finish.
