Douro Tinto Vila Regia
Excellent value everyday glugger well under a tenner.
Ruby red in colour, this wine displays fresh red strawberry and raspberry aromas, as well as some black fruits and a hint of black pepper. On the palate, it is full-bodied with well-integrated acidity and lingering flavours of ripe red fruits on the harmonious finish.
Grapes: 35% Tinta Roriz
30% Tinta Barroca
25% Touriga Franca
10% Touriga Nacional
Grapes are sourced from the highlands of the Douro region. In these elevated areas, the soil is made up of schist - a slate-like metamorphic rock that is rich in nutrients and has useful water retention properties, which help to mitigate any periods of low rainfall during summer months.
