Wine & Soul Pintas Character 2020


In Stock

“The 2020 Pintas Character is a field blend (over 30 grapes, but the majority are Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional) from old vines aged for 18 months in 90% used French oak. It comes in at 14.7% alcohol. Another super Character, this isn’t just a simple second-fiddle to the Pintas. It has evolved into a fine wine in its own right. It has ripe (but not overripe) fruit, enough freshness and controlled power. It tastes great and should continue evolving well. Drink: 2022-2037. 93 points

A lot of people complain about the 2020 vintage, hot and difficult, but Wine & Soul had a fine year, often propelled by the ability to harvest small crops quickly. Consistency, even in difficult vintages, is often the sign of a great winery.
