So we’ve been talking a lot between us about Portugal lately. We are ossibly planning a visit there in the new year. While strolling the aisles of our local LCBO I come upon a new release from Portugal, the Douro region actually. Exactly where we will be going, so I thought why not give it a try? So I did, and I liked it a lot. It is the Prazo de Roriz Tinto 2011.
This red wine is a blend which includes about 25% I believe it was of the most well known red grapes of Portugal Touring Nacional. It also has the Tinta Roriz varietal, called Tempranillo in Spain, in it too.The wine has a deep purple red colour, its fresh and vibrant, with rich ripe dark fruit, like black cherry and plum, hint of vanilla, chocolate and spice, mouth filling with a good finish.
Woohoo $19.95… Portugal here we come!!
