Meandro is Vale Meão’s the second wine, mostly touriga nacional, touriga franca and tinta roriz. Francisco Olazabal and his team foot tread each variety for four hours in granite lagars before fermenting the wines in small vats, then aging them in used French oak barrels. Time in oak enriches the dark plum and currant flavors of the fruit, adding some black walnut tones. The fruit feels cool and spicy, brisk and bright, suggesting the oak, which blunts the finish for now, will meld with bottle age. Deep concentrated red color. Floral scents combined with red fruit aromas. Very expressive on the palate with intense fruit notes, showing a long, very fresh and complex after taste.
