The Dao region of Portugal continues to impress. Here’s another good one, from organic winery Casa de Mouraz.
Casa de Mouraz 2007 Dao, Portugal
A blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Alfrocheiro, Jaen and the rare Agua Santa. Fresh, sweet cherry and berry fruit nose with some spicy, savoury notes. The palate is vivid with good acidity and savoury, spicy, earthy notes supporting the vibrant black cherry and plum fruit. Nice grippy edge. Quite northern Rhone-like in style, drinking well now. 90/100 (purchased in the Noble Green sale for £6.99)
