Quinta de Pellada 2012 (single bottle)
This blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinto Roriz as well as around 15% of a field blend of old vines produces a wine that has very concentrated nose. In the mouth there are notes of dark jam and toasty flavors with a lot of red berries and cherry present as well.
It is very complex and has tremendously long finish. As in many of the wines from Alvaro Castro you find something at or above the qualitative level of the great red wines of the Douro but with far more complexity and freshness coming from the cooler climate, granite soil and altitude of the Dao region.
This wine is in our premium segment so can therefore be purchased by the bottle.
