Barão da Várzea do Douro, Reserva Tinto

£15.50

The indigenous red grapes are cultivated in fine soils with some schist in vineyards situated near Cambres, in the western part of the Douro valley and south of the river. The climate here is warm and dry. After fermentation a third of the wine spends 6 months in 2nd year French oak barrels, before the final blending and bottling.

Complex aromas of red berry, bramble fruit and a touch of spice. The palate has blackberry and plum notes balanced by some savoury characters, bright acidity, a hint of pepper and ripe tannins.
