Description

The One-Liner A blend of classic indigenous varieties – a spicy, full-flavoured red Plum, black fruit and mocha aromas with a hint of spice and dark chocolate. Ripe and full-flavoured on the palate with soft tannins and more plum and blackberry notes. One of Portugal’s largest and most progressive producers with 600 hectares spread across estates in five regions from Douro in the north to Alentejo in the south. Winemaker Francisco Antunes oversees what must be one of the most diverse ranges in Europe, from the 3rd largest Portuguese rose brand (Casal Mendes) to some of the country’s most impressive premium reds from estates in Douro, Dao, Bairrada and Alentejo. Arguably, Francisco’s greatest achievements lie between these extremes, a range of mid-priced wines from native varieties, full of character, quite distinctly Portuguese, but at the same time approachable and with fresh, modern fruit. The hand-picked grapes are sourced from selected vineyards in the Dao region south of the Douro Valley, where old vines are tended traditionally in granite soil. Fermentation in stainless steel vats controlled at 30 degrees with maceration on the skins for 10 days in total. The wine is then matured for 6 months in 300 litre French oak barrels. Food Recommendations:- Goes well with grilled beef or lamb or robust stew. For a veggie alternative try with spinach and lentil casserole.
