JM Fonseca Ripanco Private Selection 2015

Portugal Alentejano



Deliciously fresh, ripe with depth


Syrah, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet


Ripanco is a traditional method of winemaking dating back to Roman times.  Grapes are hand-harvested, then the stems and discarded by hand (Ripanco) to ensure any harsh tannins from the stems and seeds do not interfere with the wine.  

The result is a deliciously pure wine with attractive softness.  There has tannic structure although it doesn't overwhelm the wine.  What we love about this wine is its overall fresh feel.  It is beautifully ripe and smooth, but the freshness provides a welcome dimension that gives it its uniqueness.

Ageing potential - perfect now, but will continue for the next 5 years.  Ripanco can be served slightly chilled if you prefer.
