Post Scriptum is a partner wine to Chryseia. Its profile is similar: expressive, fresh, concentrated fruit married to exquisite balance and elegance, it is ready to enjoy from a younger age. Ripe fruit nose, enhanced by fresh cherry and berry flavors and a very discreet French oak nuance. In the mouth this wine shows a long structure with extremely soft tannins.
In 1999 the Symington family formed a partnership to make top Douro wines with the Prats family of Bordeaux. The first Prats & Symington wine was Chryseia 2000 which received widespread national and international acclaim. Since then Chryseia and its second wine, Post Scriptum, have consistently appeared amongst the most highly rated Douro wines. Chryseia was the first Portuguese non-fortified wine in the Wine Spectator’s annual Top 100 Wines and has now appeared three times in this influential list. In 2014 Chryseia 2011 was ranked at number three in the Top 100, the highest ever placing of a Douro wine.
