(2016) VV stands for Vinhas Velhas, or 'Old Vines', over 20 different varieties making up the blend from the farm's old mixed planting vineyards. Like the Tinta Roriz, we are back in full-on, seductive and velvetty mode here, with mocha and exotic spices and a bottomless pool of black fruit aromas. On the palate a touch more gamy interest than the TR, and a slightly leaner, higher acid structure too, this has freshness which it has traded for a bit of sheer decadence, but it is a fine wine and ageworthy too.
