P+S Chryseia Quinta De Roriz

Wine Description

The Chryseia 2009 was made from a judicious selection of grapes chosen from Prats and Symington's own prime vineyards of Quinta de Roriz and Quinta de Perdix. The Quinta de Vila Velha vineyard, privately owned by a member of the Symington family, and which borders Roriz, also made a contribution as it has done in every preceding Chryseia wine.

"P & S has been one of the pioneers of the now widely-recognized resurgence of non-fortified DOURO DOC wines. However, this wine, whose name means "golden" in ancient Greek – as does the name of the river in Portuguese – has remained true to its own style. Elegance and balance predominate and it has depth without heaviness, and body without sharpness. CHRYSEIA symbolises the union of a noble Portuguese tradition and an equally rich Bordeaux tradition in the creation of a new and modern style of wine." - Prats & Symington

    (2014 Vintage) A powerful and concentrated red, featuring kirsch, red plum and baker's chocolate notes, balanced by tarragon, slate and violet details. Elegant, with supple tannins framing the long finish, which is laced with hot stone, olive and licorice accents. Drink now through 2023. 2,000 cases made.–GS

    (2005 Vintage) "The 2005 'CHRYSEIA' was the result of a strict selection, bottling only 25,000 liters of 200,000 kg vinified. There were a little more than 2,500 cases produced. In 2005, the winery leaned to Touriga Nacional (70%) in its blend, a higher percentage than normal, with the rest mainly Touriga Franca. Unlike in the Post Scriptum, Touriga Nacional flavors dominate this wine, throwing off ripe, plum nuances that are particularly succulent on Day 2. Like many '05s, it is graceful and elegant, and seems...
