PINHAL DA TORRE THE SYRAH QSJ
Made from grapes from mostly sandy and clay soils, Quinta de São João The Syrah 2009 vinified by the traditional tanning process, with slight maceration, and aged in French oak barrels and has not been filtered.
Displays garnet color. Aromas of slightly mentholed fruit, vanilla, toasted cocoa, spices. In the mouth it’s intense and complex, very well-tuned with round tannins, good acidity and smooth, full-bodied and long finish.
