The Douro?region of northern Portugal is the home of Port. It takes its name from the Douro river, which flows east to west from the?Spanish?border to Oporto, where it meets the Atlantic Ocean. Though Douro is best known for its?fortified wines, total production here is fairly evenly split between Port and non-fortified table wines.
Bright straw yellow. On the nose, stone and orchard fruit abound, with flinty wet stone and white pepper laid over the dominant aromatics. On the palate, impressively bright and mineral driven, with a great balance between power and lift. Lemon, green apple, bosc pear flavors comingle with a touch of floral tone and slate minerals. Juicy and mineral-driven all at once.
