Pedra Cancela Dão Selecção do Enólogo 2016

Dão, Northern Portugal, PortugalDão's Pedra Cancela is owned and operated by the Gouveia family, with João Paulo Gouveia the winemaker. After a gentle maceration and ferment, this blend of touriga nacional, alfochiero, and tinta roriz rested six months in oak barrels and three months in bottle prior to release. Dusky cassis, wild cherry, black raspberry, perfumed violets, thorns fill the plump palate of this friendly red. Tannins are fine and sticky, finishing with a flood of fresh cracked black pepper. A great wave of acidity keeps this aloft, and at a very welcome 13 degrees.Tasted: 28 June 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 17.99 BCLS Producer: Pedra CancelaDistributors: Enoteca Bacco Importers
