60% Touriga Nacional, 40% Touriga Franca
The brand showing the P + S logo is a collaboration between the Symington Port house and Bruno Prats, the former owner of Chateau Cos d’Estournel in Bordeaux. Symington began when Andrew James Symington established himself in Porto in 1882. His subsequent acquisition of three important Port houses Warres, Dows, and Grahams became a legacy passing to his three sons, while many further acquisitions accrued a family portfolio of top quality estates whose practices and reputations have endured until the present day. This has included forward thinking and innovation too, as exampled by the collaboration with Bruno Prats. After Cos d’Estournel was sold, Prats embarked on collaborations in Chile and South Africa before being approached by his friends the Symingtons. Launched by its first wine Chryseia, the the concept of Prats and Symington was to create a new cosmopolitan genre by applying Bordeaux production standards and techniques to the best red varieties and vineyards of Portugal’s Douro. Taking Portuguese wine to slightly new territory, the reception of the Chryseia and their other offerings have helped to alter the international perspective on premium, age-worthy Portuguese reds.
What The Critics Say
95/100 Wine Spectator
“An impressive red that shows finesse to the generous profile of cherry tart, red plum and raspberry gelee notes, cast with licorice, Earl Grey tea, pepper and graphite details. Aromas of violet and mocha echo on the tannic finish. Needs a few years in the cellar.” Drink 2021 - 2031
95/100 Wine Enthusiast
“Based on the magnificent Quinta de Roriz, this wine is a joint venture between the French Prats family and the Portuguese Symingtons. What has now become an icon wine is made with a nod to Bordeaux, richly structured while also elegant and layering tannins and fruit. It is obviously a wine to age, so wait until 2023.”
