In the mood to try something new? Here we have 80% Castelāo and 20% Touriga Nacional, two very popular Portuguese wine grapes. Very drinkable, refreshing, and juicy. I would easily serve this at a lunch party as it’s so fresh and lively with a medium body and almost no aftertaste. A nice touch of sweetness with vibrant fruit, a slight hint of licorice and mild spice. Extremely versatile!
A great find by Sean that I wouldn’t have pulled myself. I get notes of toasted oak, blackberry, cranberry and black grape skin. Full body, extra dry and very flavourful.
