Chryseia Magnum 2013
Prats & Symington was founded in 1999 as a joint venture between Bordeaux winemaker, Bruno Prats and the Symington family and Chryseia is their flagship interpretation of the Douro. The 2013 is a blend of 70% Touriga Nacional and 30% Touriga Franca sourced from three exceptional estates and was aged for 15 months in 80% new French oak. Deep purple in colour, it exudes rich and refined aromas of dark plum, cherries, graphite, anise and dark chocolate. Juicy, voluptuous and incredibly long, it exhibits wonderful balance between richness of fruit, savoury depth, structure and freshness. Perfect for drinking now but this will continue to evolve with further cellaring.
