Barão da Várzea do Douro, Colheita Douro Tinto

£11.50

An approachable, warm and juicy red from Portugal’s Douro region

The local grapes – Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz – grow in fine soils with some schist in vineyards near Cambres, in the western part of the Douro valley and south of the river. The climate here is warm and dry, and some of the vines are over 50 years old. After harvesting fermentation takes place in stainless steel, with a small portion (around 10%) ageing for 4 months in 2nd year French oak barrels, before the final blending and bottling.

Bright aromas of wild blackberry and spice. The palate has ripe bramble fruit, supple tannins and juicy acidity.
