About this wine
A delicious combo of Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro ant Tinta Roriz, there are lots of ripe raspberries, red plums and cherries with a lick of vanilla and spice in this bottle. The grapes have been sunbathing in the beautiful Portuguese sun which leaves them oozing with flavour. A great wine to pair with food.
Portugal is such an exciting spot for wine right now, and Dão in particular is known for producing some top notch stuff. The great thing about up and coming placing such as Portugal is you can often get great bang for your buck, the quality is great and the price won't leave you out of pocket.
