    Savage Wines Are We There Yet 2020

    Blend: 50% Touriga Nacional, 50% Syrah

    TASTING NOTE by Greg Sherwood MW:

    50% Touriga Nacional and 50% Syrah grown as bush vines on a uniquenriver pebble on shale terroir in Malgas. While the 2019 saw 100% of the grapes destemmed, the 2020 has a 10% whole bunch portion added.

    The aromatics are seductively dark and alluring with exotic notes of salty blackcurrant, blueberry, black cherry and black liquorice. Wonderfully opulent and expressive, the 2020 reveals a deliciously fleshy, creamy palate with a truly seamless texture, sweet plump velvety tannins and a long saline, maritime tinged crème de cassis finish.

    The 2019 was more influenced by the Syrah in the blend, lending a certain savoury Côte Rotie feel to the wine. The 2020 however is decidedly more Douro’esque in stature with deliciously opulent Touriga Nacional black- and blueberry fruit characteristics dominating.

    Drink now and over 10 to 12+ years.
