Wine information: Pinga do Torto is the entry point for Paul Reynolds fantastic wines from Quinta de Macedos in the Douro.In 1998 Quinta de Macedos was bought by Paul & Philippa Reynolds. It has 7 ha of old vines planted on ancient walled terraces. These vines are rooted deep in the schistous slopes, which fall away sharply to the River Torto ("Crooked River") in the valley below. Unlike many other vineyards, Quinta de Macedos escaped the mania of wholesale replanting in the 1980's and 90's and the vineyard, in some important respects, stands as a legacy of former times and practices. It is rare and worth preserving. As such, a very high importance is put into preserving the natural state of each vine. After all the renovations and new additions to the vineyard, the first successful harvest was in September 2000. Pinga do Torto is a the most accessible of the Quinta's wines designed for early drinking. It is a judicious blend of our old and young vines with 20% having an Oak component. It is bottled unfiltered and is ready to drink on release. Pinga is a Portuguese expression meaning a 'drop' of real character. It is a judicious blend of our old and young vines with 20% having an Oak component. It is bottled unfiltered and is ready to drink on release.

Tasting Notes: Pinga do Torto has a really rich nose with, red fruits, spices and coffee, savoury notes which lead on to the full, expansive palate. A long, lingering, but not over-tannic, finish. Very pure fruit.
