Chryseia was the first non-fortified Portuguese red to appear in Wine Spectator's annual Top 100 Wines.
In 1999 the Symington Port family partnered up with the Prats family of Bordeaux to make a top Douro Valley red wine, with Chryseia the result. The grapes come from the historic Qunita de Roriz estate along with the nearby Quintas of Perdiz and Vila Belha in the Upper Douro Valley. A blend of Tourigas Nacional and Franca this powerful wine is laced with rich dark fruits, spice, herbs and firm tannins. The balanced acidity brings freshness and a finesse to the wine and underscores the aging potential.
This is a wine for red meats or big stews.
