2014 was a very typical and regular and a bit cooler wine year for Quinta do Zambujeiro. The Terra came out opulent, rich and with a beautiful deep bouquet. It has seductive scents of violets and plenty of other wild flowers, black and red berries, graphite and a hint of vanilla. It is softly textured with a creamy mouth feel, supported by the typical solid but fine-grained tannins. The fruit persistence is excellent as usual and gives the wine a very long and beautiful lingering aftertaste. If stored below 15°C this Terra will improve over the next 10 years.
With all kind of meat dishes or pastas.
Serve with 15 – 17°C.
Drink from 2018– 2024
