About Silk & Spice Red Blend 2017 Portugal

The 2016 was #15 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys of 2018! Silk & Spice is the Portuguese red for every day that really delivers. 


The grapes selected for Silk & Spice come from the regions Dão, Bairrada, and Lisboa, and are vinified separately. After total destemming and gentle crushing the grapes were fermentated at a controlled temperature with short maceration to retain freshness. The wine then aged for 6 months in American oak barrels. Innumerable tastings and analyses were carried out to detrmine the final blend of  40% Touriga Nacional, 20% Baga, 20% Syrah, 20% Alicante Bouschet, creating a wine with delightfully forward fruit and very soft tannins. 

It shows an intense ruby color and intense aromas of ripe red and black fruit, such as blackberies and ripe plums. On the palate the fruit carries through with the additionm of spice notes of vanilla, black pepper and pink peppercorn as well as hints mocha. It's a full-bodied wine with good balance, soft tannins and a long finish. It's also a tremendous value!
