Flor das Tecedeiras Tinto
An unoaked blend of the Douro’s principal grapes – Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz (tempranillo) and Tinto Cão. A fresh, food-friendly wine with lots of minerality, and notes of wild berries, damsons and plums. Made with grapes harvested in the heart of the prestigious Cima Corgo sub-region of the DOC Douro and vines planted in serpentine, schist terraces towering over the riverbanks.In the glass, the colour is a striking, vibrant, deep ruby reminiscent of Port. On the nose we find youthful, intense notes of fresh, red fruit with a hint of flowers. Attractive and seductive. On the palate, smooth and fresh at first, developing into a balanced structure with elegant, fruit-led tannins and a long, persistent finish. A great partner for grilled or BBQ meats and all sorts of cheeses. Flor’s fruit-forward profile also makes it ideal for more casual meals and outdoor occasions – pizza, pasta, picnic etc.
