Conceito Contraste’16 Douro, Portugal
Conceito comes from the Douro valley, The Douro Superior to be exact which is the sub-region located the furthest up the Douro valley bordering Spain. Lots of red and dark fruits in the mix here with some good concentration yet very fresh at the same time. The wine is fruity but not jammy, with some floral herbal notes in the mix, tannins are well integrated and it has just the right amount of oak. The Conceito Contraste always seems to over deliver and will improve over the next couple of years.
