Alianca 'Foral' dos Quatro Ventos Douro

, 2017


Douro 75cl

This really is so much more modern and 'punter friendly' than it was a decade ago. It's a blend of the classic Douro grape varieties Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Tina Barroca
Visually it's a great looking glass of wine and you can tell you will be in for something reasonably full bodied.
Plenty of blue/black fruit on the nose with a hint of pepper/spice, no mention of oak in the production but I reckon it's probably seen some.
The palate is polished and soft with lots of tasty fruitcake flavours, juicy, full and very drinkable.
Great with slow lamb or soft pork dishes , not so good with spicy hot dishes
