Pintas Wine & Soul 2015
Wine & Soul is a small winery founded in 2001 by Jorge Serôdio Borges and his wife Sandra Tavares da Silva, both of whom wished to utilise their extensive winemaking experience to showcase the wonderful varieties and unique terroir of the Douro Valley. Pintas is a marvellous field blend of over 35 indigenous varieties from a vineyard that is over 80 years old. It is full-bodied and rich, with deep aromas of dark fruits, bitter chocolate, dried violets and spices. Ripe and plush on the palate, it is tempered by superb natural acidity and buttressed by a fine chassis of tannin, culminating in a long, persistent finish.
