The Douro Demarcated wine region is a breathtakingly beautiful region located in the North East of Portugal. The Douro River twists and turns along the Valley that claims the same name and has been witness to centuries of backbreaking work that has transformed a wilderness into a world class wine making region.
Over twenty five thousand farmers still take care and manage the 45.000 hectares of planted vineyards.
Aged in new 225 liter French and Hungarian oak barrels, this elegant, fresh, clean red is medium bodied, well balanced and quite charming with very good length.
Intense berry and baked fruit aromas with spice and appealingly rustic notes. Vibrant plum and black cherry on the palate with liquorice hints, robust tannins, and finely poised acidity.
“From Touriga Nacional to Trincadeira, the sweet buttery flavour and texture of lamb is a thing of beauty paired with a red of class, poise, balance and subtle fragrance.” Olly Smith – so drink with your classic Sunday roast lamb!
