Crasto Douro Portugal - the wine detectiveCrasto Douro 2013 – Portugal

A red wine from the precarious, steep slopes of the Douro valley. Here a blend of port grapes (Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barrroca, Touriga Franca, and Touriga Nacional) combine to give a sturdy, tasty red. Opaque red in colour with aromas of red berry fruit and subtle oak. Flavours of dried fruits, hints of spices, and of mulberries, integrated oak with a smooth finish. A Douro old favourite on top form. Enjoy with lamb or other seasonal Fall dishes, or Campozola cheese.
Winemaking – Grapes are hand picked into 25 kg plastic crates and undergo careful selection prior to destemming. Fermentation is carried out in specially designed temperature controlled fermentation tanks for 5 to 7 days. Varieties are co-fermented which improves the integration of the different varieties used in this blend.
