Douro, Portugal

Buy Now:

Muscular, structured wine with a bouquet of crushed violets, coffee and black fruits. The palate is intense and complex, with lively acidity and assertive tannins balancing juicy notes of bitter chocolate, balsamic jus, grilled meat and leather. Seriously good juice.

Decant for 2 hours and have with blackened chicken, barbecued vegetables or t-bone steak.

Quinta do Judeu's flagship red is made from fully fifteen different varieties, the vines of which are 60 years old. Grapes were trodden by bare human foot, before fermentation and maturation for 12 months in French oak barrel.

Quinta do Judeu, which dates from 1932 and is owned by the Alves de Carvalho family, takes its name from the Roman-Jewish statue that keeps watch from its roof. The quinta includes 3 estates (totalling 27 hectares), planted solely to Port grapes and with vines ranging from 5-85 years.
The starkly-beautiful Douro region in northern Portugal is famous for its fortified wine, Port, but production is evenly split between Port and table wines. The terraced, vertiginous slopes that characterise the region are composed of tough schist and granite, a terroir that is ideal for the production of high-quality wine

Jamie Goode (The Wine Anorak)

"Savoury, spicy notes on the nose with some chocolate and vanilla, as well as some subtle balsamic notes. Perfumed, floral and taut. The palate shows sweet raspberry, red cherry and plum fruit with a keen, savoury, spicy edge and some grippy structre."
