WINE OF THE DAY 9/6/16 Foral Douro $6.99

September 6, 2016

A nose of ripe plum, blackberry compote, blueberries, hints of liquorice and warm spice. On the palate, there is more ripe, full flavoured plum as well as fresh acidity, gentle tannins and an earthy finish. 

The hand-picked grapes are sourced from selected vineyards in the Douro Valley, where old vines are planted in schist soil in the 'patamares' system. 

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats controlled at 30 degrees with maceration on the skins for 10 - 12 days in total. 

A delicious partner to veal, lamb, or a platter of firm mature cheeses (with slices of crisp pear & apple & a nice chutney). 

60% Tinta Roriz, 10% Touriga Francesa, 30% Tinta Barroca 

"The vibrant flavours of boysenberry, blackberry and plum pudding are lush and flanked by notes of vanilla and cinnamon. Dark chocolate and pepper accents enliven the finish. 88 points."
Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator 'Best Values', 31st December 2012
