The smoothness of this wine! A carressing touch of dark berries on a sweet licorice backdrop.
It reminds me of southern France and its suntanned Grenache for which, I must admit, I have a soft spot. But there is something else going on. A cool metallic sense of freshness, a thermostat to tame the warmness of the fruit.
It makes sense of course, because we’re not in the Rhône Valley. We are a thousand kilometers south-west just outside Lisbon. More importantly, we’re just a few kilometers from the Atlantic Ocean and its moderating effect on the warm southern sun.
They call it CLIMA MARITIMO.
They named the wine CLIMA.
Get ready for a soft, generous kiss from Vale da Capucha.
