The Lady And The Gentleman is sure to please all your taste buds, from the beginning of your meal to the finale! This pack includes 1 of each:
2018 Quinta Essentia is full of fresh pineapple, yellow peach, litchi and a hint of gunsmoke that immediately greet the nose. Ripe orchard fruits are revealed on a medium-bodied palate that has lovely linearity and tension. The wine is poised and balanced, with a great combination of ripeness and mineral tension. Maturation in oak has resulted in characters of warm toasted brioche and roasted almonds, and the maturation on fermentation lees has given a creamy integration to all the flavor components.
2018 Pere de Famille is stunning in the glass with a dense, dark ruby core extending completely to the rim. The aromas are rich and varied: black raspberry and currant, fresh green herbs, violets and graphite each compete for attention. On the palate the wine is powerful and intense while retaining freshness and balance, showing concentrated black fruits, baking spice and perhaps the most pronounced mineral streak of any Père de Famille to date. The finish is mouthwatering and long, permeated by salinity, dusty earth and a lovely sense of dried spice. This wine is amazingly approachable now, but promises substantial return with medium to long-term cellaring.
