Javali | Clos Fonte Do Santo Cherry Capsule | Red | 2018 | Doc Douro - Vivino Rated 4.0
Name Origin: Clos Fonte do Santo is a name given due to the purity of the natural spring present in the walled vineyard. This wine is light and great on a sunny afternoon, with delicate dishes such as sushi or even as a refreshing palate cleanser between bold full-bodied reds.
Winery: Quinta do Javali Vineyard: Clos Fonte do Santo
Grapes: Old Vines (65+ years), high on the mountainside to produce a rare light bodied Douro
Aging: 12 months in used French Oak
Tasting Notes: Light ruby color, such as the color of the red cherry aromas of red fruits dominate with a balanced maturation, without being exaggerated. Evidence for the notes of red cherry, gooseberry and raspberry. In the mouth, it is admirable the acid freshness in a red wine of the Douro, which positively reflects the influence of the location of these vines on a cooler terrain. The fruity notes, which are allied to the vibrant minerality, provide a proof marked by lightness
