This is a spring rite of passage for us, the return of our favorite Iberian rose, Vallado's 100% Touriga Nacional blockbuster. This producer from Portugal's Douro region was named as one of the world's top 100 producers by Wine & Spirits Magazine, and this lovely wine showcases their deft and seamless artistry in full bloom.
This wine emphasizes elegance and understatement while still delivering subtle dark berry/cherry-tinged aromas and flavors. Augmented by notes of spring flowers, melon and a slight herbaceous bent, the weave is complex and plush, simultaneously silky and cerebral.
This is a great companion for fresh greens/salad nicoise, boquerones or any of our fabulous tinned fish options, or anything lively and sprightly!
