Crisp, juicy style with lots of fresh fruit – cool damson, ripe strawberry, red cherry and raspberry, with plenty of spice and weight coming through on the pallet. Really silky and drinkable, with brilliant local character. This great-value, characterful Portuguese red wine is a skillful blend of Jaen (Mencia), Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) and Alfrocheiro Preto. The vines grow in clay-granite soils and maturation of the wine comprises 6 months in barrel.
Chill lightly and enjoy with roast suckling pig or, if that’s too much trouble, normal pork chops.
