Deadline Roriz Red 2017
The legendary Quinta de Roriz has undergone a true qualitative revolution in recent years, returning to its deserved position with the best producers in the Douro and Portugal. This famous, beautiful and historic Douro property belongs, nowadays, to the Symington family, from Porto Graham's. Located on the left bank of the Douro, in a natural amphitheater, the Portuguese winery has its vines distributed between 125 and 500 meters in altitude. Roriz has more than 200 hectares of vineyards, among which 42 hectares are occupied with vines with the letter “A”. The soils of Quinta de Roriz have tin remnants mixed in a predominantly schist soil, originating from the old mines located in the region, which gives the wines a strong mineral character. Its location, close to the Douro river, provides cooler nights during the ripening season of the grapes, resulting in intense aromatic qualities that are easily identifiable in its wines.
