2017 Reserva Tinto, Quinta da Pedra Alta, Douro
Made up largely of Touriga Franca (50%) and Touriga Nacional (44%) this wine is a benchmark example of a Douro red. Bramble and black cherry fruits combine with black pepper spice and hints of lavender. Tannins are ripe and rich as well as firm and there is real balance and elegance. This is a real crowd pleaser.
