£15.11

In stock

PRODUCT NOTE

Production Method: This big-boned, fleshy beauty is a cracking example of the exciting new-wave Douro Valley. A rich red blend of tinta roriz, tinta barroca, touriga franca and touriga nacional, it is bursting with lively, intense fruit backed by silky tannins. Ideal for garlic and herb-encrusted roast lamb. – Jonathan Ray, The Daily Telegraph, June 2009

Vineyard: The vineyards are planted on terraces with rows of vines planted up and down the slope on shist soil. The aspect is southeast facing and the age of the vines is 20+ years.

Vinification: The grapes, chosen from selected plots, were taken to the winery in 22 kg plastic boxes. On arrival in the winery they were rigorously inspected on a sorting table. The grapes were then destemmed and crushed and transferred into stainless steel tanks where they fermented. The alcoholic fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for 5 to 7 days. The wine was matured 95% in stainless steel vats and 5% in oak barrels.

TASTING NOTE

Dark and richly aromatic, with heady flavours of ripe red berries, violet and spice.

Pairing

Ideal with lamb and roasted red meat dishes.
