WINE & SOUL PINTAS CHARACTER
In 2001, Wine & Soul was established, making its debut with the first vintage of Pintas, the flagship wine. In 2003, they bought the vineyard, tying their colours to the mast. This Pintas Character, their second wine is truly impressive. This is from over 30 indigenous varieties – a field blend, rigorously selected, de-stemmed and foot-trodden before being fermented for 10 days in traditional lagares before 18 months in 50% new and 50% one year old French oak barrique.
"A very bright, intense plum, jet-shot, this presents very pure fresh fruit, less of the candied cherry character found in previous vintages and with a floral edge and an earthy intrigue. The palate is pepper spiced and rich in dark and red fruit, warm pain aux raisins and Bakewell tart. This has real character, silken whilst retain tannic form and edge – fabulous wine with grilled and roasted meats and char-grilled vegetables. "
