Quinta dos Carvalhais, 'Duque de Viseu', 2019, Dão Tinto, Portugal


Ruby red in colour, with aromas of blackberries, cherries and raspberries married with floral nuances and hints of balsamic. The palate is ripe and smooth, with velvety tannins and a vibrant acidity which carries the flavours onto the fresh finish.

This wine is named after the Duke of Viseu, a title first held by Prince Henry the Navigator of Portugal, these modern wines are made at the Quinta dos Carvalhais winery by Beatriz Cabral de Almeida. A blend of estate-grown fruit from Quinta dos Carvalhais and fruit bought in from trusted growers, the wines are vibrant and fruit forward and showcase the signature freshness of the Dão region.
