Guru comes from what is now a 56 year old vineyard in the Cima Corgo, planted with four varieties: Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Códega do Larinho. The wine is fermented at low temperatures in new French oak before being aged for 6 months, with lees stirring. This cracking wine offers an astonishingly vibrant nose, complex, with apples and pears countered by stone fruit, melon, physalis and citrus – all embellished by vanilla and warm brioche. The palate echoes the aromatics presented on the nose, set within a luscious, seductive frame. Rounded and lithe there is such refreshing acidity and minerality which give amazing focus.
Intensely aromatic but with as much of a creamy character as fruit. Pear more than citrus. Classically Douro. Creamy and grainy pear on the palate too. Restrained oak allows the fruit to shine. Bone dry – almost chalky – finish. Relatively lean on the mid palate but it’s persistent and classy.” Julia Harding MW (jancisrobinson.com)
