Ratings and Reviews

The 2017 Post Scriptum de Chryseia is a 49/51 blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca this year (approaching equality), and it aged for 12 months in French oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. This is not much bigger than the Prazo (also reviewed) this year in most respects, but it shows more finesse and freshness. There is more power as well and a far longer finish. Most of all, though, this has lift to the fruit. This is simply a more sophisticated wine. It provides a step up in quality, but there is admittedly also a step up in price. Bargain hunters may be quite happy with the Prazo this issue, but if you do step up, you'll be rewarded.

Mark Squires - Wine Advocate 91

A sinewy red, featuring raspberry tart and cherry flavors, edged with violet, orange zest and licorice details that are focused by fresh acidity, sailing through the mineral and baking spice notes on the finish. Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca. Drink now through 2025.

- Wine Spectator - 91

The second wine of a pair created by the Symington family and French winemaker Bruno Prats, the wine is structured, rich while also elegant. Spices and tannins combine with acidity to produce a powerful wine, solid with black fruits and ready to age.
