Tasting Notes: This 100% Vinhão is a rustic wine with an intense colour & delicious flavours of forest fruits. This is a traditional style wine that has been modernized & is now famous for its culinary versatility, however still a rarity in the UK!The grape Vinhao makes the darkest wine in Portugal (also called Sousão in the south) & it is considered a landmark wine in the Vinho Verde region. Drink it chilled as a light summer red or slightly below room temperature with BBQ meats!With silky smooth tannins likened to Burgundian pinot, this easy going, chill-able red starts with opulent violets on the nose, progressing into blackberries & unripe plum! A red with a slightly higher acidity that keeps the wine fresh. Working well to cut through fatty foods.
