Cem Reis Viognier 2017
The Cem Reis Wines are composed of a 100% Syrah Red and a 100% Viognier White.
The Syrah is produced from the best batches of that variety each year resulting in a final lot which matured for 16 months in French (50%) and American (50%) Oak. With dark violet tones, it presents deep blackberry flavours. A round wine with firm structure and persistence..
The Viognier, produced with grapes from a neighbour family propriety in Montemor-o-Novo, results from a careful selection of those grapes. 9 months in new French Oak barrels and 30 days of intense batonnage followed by 8 months of rest result in a very balanced, elegant yet structured White wine. Expressive citric notes and a unctuous, buttery, round finish.
