Paço dos Cunhas de Santar Nature 2012

You can still breathe tradition at Paço dos Cunhas de Santar which has been producing wine for over 400 years. Practicing certified organic agriculture, the wines reveal intensity and personality. Located in the Santar village, the winery resides in a 17th century manor, that for many generations, was a producer of olive oil, fruit and wine, a major supplier to the big marketplaces of Oporto.

Tasting Notes 100 % certified organic. Aromas of bright ripe cherry and cassis, hints of forest fruits jams and floral touches. These fruit components carry onto the palte with a soft distinct mouth feel. Lots of volume and a harmonious long persistent finish.
