Guru Wine & Soul 2017

Guru comes from what is now a 56 year old vineyard in the Cima Corgo, planted with four varieties: Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Códega do Larinho. The wine is fermented at low temperatures in new French oak before being aged for 6 months, with lees stirring

"The growing season of 2016/2017 was both hot and dry. The quality of the fruit was excellent, with little sorting required The grapes were concentrated and intense, making for wines of impressive complexity. This offers an astonishingly vibrant nose, complex, with apples and pears countered by stone fruit, melon, physalis and citrus – all embellished by vanilla and warm brioche. The palate echoes the aromatics presented on the nose, set within a luscious, seductive frame. Rounded and lithe there is such refreshing acidity and minerality which give focus – stunning wine "

“Intensely aromatic but with as much of a creamy character as fruit. Pear more than citrus. Classically Douro. Creamy and grainy pear on the palate too. Restrained oak allows the fruit to shine. Bone dry – almost chalky – finish. Relatively lean on the mid palate but it’s persistent and classy.”

Portuguese Wine

Portugal is on a roll – well overdue. Loved by the Press and, despite the rate of exchange, offering great value, it is also a low wine-miles alternative to imports from further afield.
