PORTUGAL - Quinta das Camellias 2012 Reserva DAO
Winery : Quinta das Camellias
Quinta das Camellias is a small producer making premium blended reds from a single, elevated estate in the cool, northern Dao region. It was the top red of our Portuguese tasting last year, impressing with its clarity of fruit on the nose - morello cherry moving into darker plum - complemented by oriental notes of rose and almond. In the mouth soft richness with chocolatey characters.
Grapes include touriga nacional, alfrocheiro and jaen! Any the wiser? You don't need to be, this is simply a classy wine, and stunning value to boot.
