Macanita Sousao, 2017, 750ml
Opaque violet. On the nose, an intriguing aromatic combination of red and black fruit, with purple flowers and schist minerality laid over the abundant fruit. On the palate, mouthwateringly bright acidity that is tempered and framed by the wood – there’s almost no overt indication that the wine has been aged in new oak. Juicy, mouth filling, and lifted, with punchy black and red berry fruit laid over with peppery spicy notes. Finishes long, with a quality that quickly demands another taste.
