2017 Douro Tinto (Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas)
Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas, Douro Tinto, Douro, Portugal 2017Touriga Franca & Many More BLACK PLUM & BERRIES. BOLD, RIPE, & DARK. FULL-BODIED Often as vines grow older, their production of grapes diminishes to the point that growers will rip them out and replant younger, more vigorous ones. The problem is that younger vines rarely produce wines with as much richness and character as the older, more established ones do. This field blend of Touriga Franca and up to twenty two other traditional Douro varieties comes from a vineyard composed entirely of these old and very special vines which haven't been sacrificed in the name of higher yields. Try a bottle and taste the wisdom that comes with age! Serving Suggestions: Veal shank in a stew of red wine, onions, carrots, potatoes and a fistful of thyme, rosemary and parsley.
