Quinta do Vale Meao, Meandro Tinto
Deep concentrated red colour. Floral scents combined with red fruit aromas. Very expressive on the palate with intense fruit notes, showing a long, very fresh, and complex after taste. Each grape variety is vinified separately. This wine was matured in second- and third-year French Allier oak barriques for 14 months.
Ideal with red meats, grilled vegetables, pork, and cheese.
The Quinta Do Vale Meao Estate is a standard bearer for the Douro and Portugal. Their wines have grace, finesse, and boldness. The Olazabal family, proud owners and descendants of the founder, Antonia Adelaide Ferreira, are now writing a significant chapter for this iconic estate and the region. Since 1998, Winemaker Xito Olazabal is at pains to understand the vast pallet of grapes and terroirs he has within his estate, a passion reflected in the character of his wines. Great experience, skill, and attention to detail are all key to getting the best out of the estate-grown grapes. Mono-culture vineyards, planted by soil type - alluvial, granite, and schist - are all fermented and aged separately. The resultant wines are then blended together, with different proportions each year, to best represent the estates overall terroir and each vintage's character.
