A lovely harmonious medium-bodied wine with pure damson and dark cherry fruits.
Perfect with duck breast or pork dishes.
I have just finished a tasting of wines from the Dão region for a piece in the Irish Times. I suspect this will feature strongly. Dão is one of the best-known wine regions of Portugal, but until recently, often produced very average wines. This has changed over the last decade; if you enjoy light to medium-bodied wines, then this is well worth checking out.
