Perswijn, februari 2011,
Romig, zoete kersen, verleiding, mooi hout, vanille, zwarte olijven, klein
pepertje, chocolade, lekker.
Finished sample, to be bottled late 2010. A blend of 75% Touriga Nacional
and 25% Touriga Franca. Silky, refined, softly mineral and cedary nose
with very elegant, gently spiced cherry and blackberry fruit. The palate
has lovely acidity, the mouth-feel softened by a French chalk silkiness
to the tannins and the ripe, juicy red fruit filling the mouth. Delicious
balance here, a little roughening Touriga Nacional character adding a
touch of meatier depth, but the long, spicy finish is delicious.

There's a cedary finesse to this wine, with bold and glossy fruit. Positively
creamy on the nose, it shows some very fine oak and great refinement.
On the palate it has great freshness, with a squirt of juicy cherry acidity
and elegant cherry and redcurrant fruit. Very fine tannins, lovely balance,
quite grippy and needing time.

Big black cherries, violets and bitter chocolate. Balanced.

Lithe yet powerful flavors of wild plum, kirsch and dark cherry fill this
full-bodied red, which has lots of rich, exotic spice and mineral notes
that flow into the long, peppery finish. Drink now through 2015. – K.M.

The 2007 POST SCRIPTUM DE CHRYSEIA is a blend of Tinta Roriz (40%), Touriga
Franca (35%), Tinta Barroca (20%) and the rest an old vines field blend.
It spent 9 months in French oak. It is quite similar to the 2005 at this
stage, elegantly constructed, with a burst of power on the end in its
youth. It also has some of those same aromatics, if not quite as powerful.
It is quite delicious at the moment and I liked it more and more as it
sat in the glass, expanding and developing. This is quite approachable
now, but should hold reasonably well in the cellar. Drink now-2016.

The 2006 POST SCRIPTUM DE CHRYSEIA is not quite as fleshy as its sibling,
the ’05 reviewed this issue, but this is a nice performance for a second
wine in this vintage. Laced with plum and rhubarb notes, it is easygoing
and flavorful, lively and focused. It will be early maturing, and it does
fade a bit with air, but as has become typical, this shows well next to
its big brother at this point in time. Come back in a few years and that
will change, as the ’06 Chryseia has better structure. Drink now-2014.

The Wine Anorak, Jamie Goodle, August 20,2007
‘Sweet, ripe, open spicy nose is quite lush with a sweet herbiness. It’s
a bit ‘dusty’, but in a nice way. The ripe, lush palate has nice spicy
definition to the generous fruit. Really nice wine.’
