CHRYSEIA red 2019


In November 1998, the Symington family proposed that Bruno Prats participate in a new project for the production of a top quality unfortified Douro wine. This proposal took shape in 1999 with the creation of PRATS & SYMINGTON as an equal partnership between the two families. Experimental production in this first year allowed the selection of the best lots and the most suitable varieties for the project.
CHRYSEIA was one of the pioneers in the now widely recognized resurgence of unfortified DOURO DOC wines. However, this wine, whose name means "golden" in ancient Greek - just like the name of the river in Portuguese - has remained true to its style. Elegance and balance predominate and it has weightless depth and lack of sharpness.
CHRYSEIA symbolizes the union of a noble Portuguese tradition with an equally rich Bordeaux tradition in creating a new and modern style of wine. CHRYSEIA was first released with the 2000 vintage.
The team of winemakers Bruno Prats, Charles Symington, Pedro Correia and Luís Coelho stage the wine for 15 months in 400L French oak barrels before bottling it.
