Duorum Colheita Red 2019

A blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, and Tinta Roriz, this wine comes from two different parcels of land in two different Douro sub-regions at two different altitudes. The grapes are carefully selected and fermented in stainless steel tanks before aging in oak barrels for approximately twelve months.

Tasting Notes

A richly aromatic wine of black cherries, tar, mocha, and a hint of violets. On the palate, this wine's rich texture is balanced perfectly against a zesty acidity, and rounded out by well-integrated, fine-grained tannins. This wine begs for another sip as its mellifluous flavors develop well into the finish.

Food Pairing

Ths wine pairs perfectly with choice cuts of steak, pot roasts, and hearty casseroles like cassoulet.
