Colinas do Douro Superior Red, Douro, Portugal, 2020
A classic Douro blend of Touriga Nacional 50%, Touriga Franca 35% and Tinto Cão 15%. A third of the blend was aged in second year barrels of French oak. The vineyards are converting to Organic.
This dry red wines has a wine of dark colour, resembling ripe cherries, with aromas of flowers, blackberries and Carob. In the mouth it reveals the characteristic freshness of high altitude wines. This is a mineral wine, with silky tannins, but at the same time it is unctuous and layered. A truly balanced Douro Superior.
Pairs well with a wide variety of dishes, including moderately or strongly flavoured white and red meat, pasta, pizza, oily fish like salmon or mackerel, cured cheese and chocolate.
