Tasting Note

Opaque red in colour with aromas of red berry fruit and subtle oak. On the palate it has a perfect balance of clean, tasty red fruits, with a lovely weight mid palate and finish of soft, well intergrated oak. This is a very well made, moreish wine that you can enjoy with lamb or other seasonal Spring dishes.

Winemaking

Grapes are hand picked into 25 kg plastic crates and undergo careful selection prior to destemming. Fermentation is carried out in specially designed temperature controlled fermentation tanks for 5 to 7 days. Varieties are co-fermented which improves the integration of the different varieties used in this blend.

Press

  • Vibrant purple red. Vibrant and lightly floral on the nose too. Just full of vitality. Firm but gentle. Cool and caressing. Great introduction to Douro reds. Drink 2017-2025. 16.5/20

  • Blueberry and morello cherry aromas. Elegant palate with similar flavours. A memorable wine with lovely balance.

  • Rich and powerful, this wine is made from a heady cocktail of Port grapes involving Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barocca. A punchy, powerful but massively juicy wine, this is perfect with aged Cheddar or wintry pies and stews.

Customer Reviews

  • 'Growing on me'

    I bought this early last summer and I have just revisited. I think it has become more mellow, and perhaps a touch too drinkable! Very good value for the quality. Obviously I cannot add to the descriptive expertise of ' les connoisseurs' above, but I have to question whether Matthew Jukes is talking about the same wine as Ms JR?
