Encosta do Vale Galego Colheita Tinto 2020 Adega M. Cordeiro
"Ripe and fruity"
"Sunshine in a bottle."
"Unusual red, went well with some spicy sausages and grilled veg."
Stunning organic vineyard in the beautiful Portuguese region of Tejo. Maria Cordeiro hand harvests the grapes which are packed into small trays to avoid damage. They undergo a long maceration to extract all the flavour of the fruit. The wine is partly aged in French oak before very gentle filtration. Extremely well integrated and good expression of the indigenous Tinta Roriz grape.
Ripe, strawberry jam and spice with a fresh floral attack. Blackcurrant, cherries, plums and sweet spice notes. Persistent, round and harmonious structure.
