Browse by Grape - Tinto Cao

One of the five top quality grapes used for Port, although plantings are very scarce in the Douro. It's unusual to find it as a table wine but some is still made.

A blend of indigenous Portugese grapes from a single vineyard. A seductive combination of black cherries, cinnamon & leathery aromas. The palate is both peppery & smooth with ripe mulberry fruit & cedar overtones giving plenty of length.

With its brilliant red appearance and brick red hues on the rim, the wine offers refined aromas of cherries along with a subtle perfumed floral character as well as superb finesse. Essentially the wine is elegant in style, however, the palate presents somewhat of an enigma – initially the fruit and elegance on the nose comes through on the palate, but with gentle extract. It is superbly balanced and fresh, culminating in a somewhat robust and firm finish with a tannic grip. It will be interesting to see this wine develop as it ages, undoubtedly, in a very elegant manner.
