So we’ve been talking a lot between us about Portugal lately, possibly planning a visit there in the new year and so 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, and this is what 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 Touriga Nacional and 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!!
