Quinta da Pellada Doda 2011 (single bottle)
The cooperation between the superstar of Portugese wine making Dirk Niepoort from Douro and the most prominent Dao wine maker (and my favorite Portugese wine maker) Alvaro Castro has created this unique and rare wine. Doda 2011 combines the very best of two regions, Dao and Douro with 60% of a wine lot from Douro region, produced in the Quinta de Nápoles from very old vineyards, one of them with more than 120 years old, and 40% from a wine lot from Dão region, produced in Quinta da Pellada also from old vineyards and from the typical grapes from the region – Touriga Nacional, Jane, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz.
Dark in colour, very complex aroma and full of fresh red fruit notes combined with spicy, earthy, balsamic pine needles and subtle floral aromas. The palate shows great acidity, with an impressive balanced structure and soft tannins well integrated. Long and persistent, with great ageing potential.
This wine is in our premium segment so can therefore be purchased by the bottle.
