Quinta de Macedos
Paul Reynolds purchased this ancient 6.5 Ha vineyard in 1998, after many years of dispair at observing the neglect to which it was subjected. The Winery and House were duly renovated and the first wine was made at the property in 2000. Helped by his brother Raymond, the wines are “naturally” made by traditional methods (lagares) and allowed to mature at their own pace in new oak barriques. Tiny yields result in great complexity and intensity. These plots contain at least 16 different local grape varieties. A new 1.5Ha vineyard was planted in 1999 respecting the original varietal mix. Tasting notes for the 2000 - Hugely broody, intense and concentrated. High toned ripe black fruits, layered with warm spice notes and a hint of oak. The structure is immense with compact tannins and grip. Good acidity and complex ripe fruit flavours, finishing long , with lingering expression. Best after 2012.
