It might be Vale Meao’s ‘second’ wine, but Meandro has care lavished upon it every inch of the way. Trodden in granite lagares, but then transferred to stainless steel for vinification, by individual variety, before ageing in 2nd and 3rd year barriques for 14 months. The approach to blending is very similar to that of the Quinta wine, bringing together varieties and soil types.
Aromas of truffle, black plum, cedar and a charred wood.
The palate has lovely concentration, juicy black plum, baking spice and a hint of evolved fruit and leather. The structure is perfect….tannins that are high but really well integrated, fresh acidity and fabulous complexity. This is a big but elegant wine and the finish is everlasting!
