Douro Red Wine
CHRYSEIA has been one of the pioneers of the now widely-recognised resurgence of non-fortified DOURO DOC wines. However, this wine, whose name means "golden" in ancient Greek as does the name of the river in Portuguese has remained true to its own style. Elegance and balance predominate and it has depth without heaviness, and body without sharpness. CHRYSEIA symbolises the union of a noble Portuguese tradition and an equally rich Bordeaux tradition in the creation of a new and modern style of wine. CHRYSEIA was first launched with the 2000 vintage.
Very dark and intense colour. Rich fruity nose of black cherries, dark plum, chocolate, with well-integrated and discreet oak. Very rich structure on the palate with great freshness and minerality. The velvety tannins are long, supple and elegant. Lengthy and lingering creamy finish. A wine with great ageing potential.
