Comboio do Vesuvio, 2018

Douro Doc

Description and Reviews:
There has been a station on the main line Douro railroad at Quinta do Vesúvio since 1887 and the trains that daily call there are very much part of the property’s day to day life. This railway forms part of Vesúvio’s rich heritage and when the Symington family decided to launch this third dry red wine from the legendary estate, it felt only natural to evoke the propitious coexistence between railway and vineyard. The ‘Comboio do Vesúvio’ (Vesúvio Train) is unoaked to underscore the wine’s youthful, fruit forward profile.

This unoaked wine has pure red fruit aromas and floral notes of rock rose and Mediterranean bush vegetation. On the palate, defined flavours of wild fruits stand out with some herbaceous notes where fennel punctuates (quite typical in Vesuvio wines).
