Casal Sta. Maria Colares Ramisco 2007
This is a distinctive and characterful wine made from the Ramisco grape variety harvested from ancient ungrafted bush vines cultivated on the sandy cliff-tops of Colares DOC. It is a tightly-wound and wonderfully elegant style of wine that rides an intriguing line between sweet-sour red fruits and subtle savoury nuances. These wines tend to age very well so, whilst it should now be ready to drink, there would be no harm in further cellaring.
