Duorum Reserva Old Vines 2009 ( RP 93)
Hong Kong, Wine, 紅酒
The 2009 RESERVA “OLD VINES,” seen for the first time here in bottle in the USA, is an old vines (some 100 years old) field blend of, says the winery, mostly Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, with 5% each of Tinta Roriz and Sousao, the lots separately aged in a mixture of new (70%) and old French oak for 12-18 months. Beautifully structured, well balanced, intense on the finish and rather bright for the vintage, this relatively young winery (although, of course, the winemaker and owners are among the more famous names in Portugal) has done a fine job crafting this into their best wine yet. Do yourself a favor, though, and don’t even think of tasting this just now. Despite its elegance and fine balance, it is not even close to showing what it has. Give it a couple of years at least to come around and show some complexity. Drink -2024.
Deep red colour. Intense aroma dominated by very ripe black fruits like blackberries and cassis, also showing floral aromas of violet, iodine and exotic wood. Aromas of spices result from elevage in the barrels.
