Quinta da Vineadouro "Douro Doc Reserva" 2017

A still red wine from the Douro DOC region of Portugal.

Creamy & dark. Blueberry jam & chocolate.

Tasting Notes

The Douro Doc Reserva 2017 from Quinta da Vineadouro has a nice ruby colour with garnet hues.

On the nose it’s creamy and dark with blackcurrant and blueberry jam, liquorice, graphite, but also “deeper” notes of chocolate and vanilla.

On the mouth it’s still chewy but nicely so. It promises a few more years of aging potential!

On the palate the notes of vanilla, bitter chocolate and liquorice are back.

The finish is long.

Douro DOC

Portuguese wine

Douro is a Portuguese wine region in the Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro region, based on the Douro River. It is often referred to as the Alto Douro because it is situated upstream from Porto and is shielded from coastal influences by mountain ranges. As a Denominaço de Origem Controlada, the area has the highest wine classification in Portugal (DOC). Although the Douro is best known for Port wine, it also produces table wine. Usually, non-fortified wines are referred to as “Douro wines.”
