Douro Tinto "28 Uvas", Achados e Perdidos 2016 (Douro, Portugal)
This is a field blend of 28 different red varietals (!) all planted in a single terraced vineyard on the steep slopes of the Douro river. They know that the vines are over 100 years old, but could be closer to 200, all planted in black schist and sandy soils and have never seen chemicals. The grapes are hand harvested and partially de-stemmed with some left whole cluster, then wild fermented in cement tanks and aged in stainless steel on the lees before getting bottled unfiltered. Old school Douro farmer wine packed with charm and lots of spicy dark fruit and crushed rocks.
