Another brilliant Dao wine from Alvaro Castro

Alvaro Castro Dao

I bought this wine last year at a ridiculously cheap price in a sale from online Portuguese wine merchant Castas. It’s my last bottle, and I’m sad that I don’t have more. Once again, it shows just how good the Dao region, with its granitic soils, can be.

Álvaro Castro 2007 Dão, Portugal
A blend of Alfrocheiro, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz. Lovely open sweet, floral aromatics with bright black cherry and plum fruit, showing a violet lift. The palate shows sweet, bright fruit with great purity. Simple but elegant and beautifully poised, with some savoury meaty, tarry notes as well as a bit of structure. A really lovely, drinkable wine and a bargain to boot. 92/100
