• Cinque 2016 - The Five

  • $35.00

  • Description

    Cinque is a wonderful blend made from five different varieties – Graciano, Tempranillo, Tinta Cão, Touriga Nacional and Sousão. There’s a lot going on with the Cinque. Each of these varieties – which make excellent single varietal wines – come together beautifully. It’s hard to describe in a few words but it's like that magical thing which happens when a group of old friends get together and bring out the best in each other – except in a bottle.

    An intriguing and expressive blend with plenty of spice and earthy notes and an abundance of fragrant berries. The palate is rich and beautifully balanced with a flourish of juicy dark fruit swathed in a blanket of mouthcoating suede like tannins. A touch of amaro acidity keeps the freshness in check as the flavours glide on through to an exceptionally long finish. Compelling and delicious!


    The 2016 Cinque was featured in Gourmet Traveller Wines top 100 new releases - Oct/Nov 2019 Edition.

    "This blend of graciano, tinta cão, touriga nacional, sousão and tempranillo is an Iberian tour de force. The bouquet quietly displays earthy undergrowth savouriness, with berry and Campari aromas emerging after airing. Superb flavour and terrific length. (195 dozen made)" 94 points
