PEDRA CANCELA - The Wine Detective

Pedra Cancela  Dáo – Portugal

The Pedra Cancela is made of 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Alfrocheiro, and 30% Tinata Roriz.It is light, medium-bodied, and shows smooth plummy-cherry fruit, baking spices and a hint of chocolate, with satisfying mid-palate weight, harmonious, and very inviting. Drink until 2018.

Dáo Region

Dáo is sandwiched between the sunny, dry, relatively hot landscapes that drive Douro’s bold fruited, full bodied, highly alcoholic styles and Alentejo’s even hotter climates that amp wines up a couple of notches. Logically, you’d expect Dáo wine styles to be hotter than Douro and less so than Alentejo. Nothing could be further from the truth. Dáo is much wetter and cooler in winter, greener and more temperate in summer. As far as Portuguese climates go, Dáo feels more like it belongs up north in France.
