Lua Nova Em Vinhas Velhas 2008
Due to the low yields and difficult harvesting, “Vinhas Velhas” (Old Vines) are becoming a rarity in the world. By producing a wine exclusively from “Vinhas Velhas”, oenologists Anselmo Mendes and João Silva e Sousa wanted to show what they admire most in these cines: the authenticity, resistance, diversity, concentration, elegance and balance that come from Old Vines!
Smoky espresso gelato, and chocolate fudge aromas with a round, dryish medium-to-full body and a savory roasted root vegetable, tomato, cedar and earth finish. 89 Points - Tastings.com Who wouldn't want a espresso gelato, it also hints of a dark raspberry genache cake!
