Quinta do Romeu "Moinho do Gato" Douro Tinto '16

As with many of our Portuguese producers, we have been slowly unfolding each winery's portfolio, one selection at a time. This month, we're featuring a new selection to the shop from Quinta do Romeu!

In the northernmost reaches of the upper Douro, the Menéres family founded the town of Jerusalém do Romeu, where they make not only wine, but cork and olive oil. Here, the elevation is high and steep, and the climate is relatively cool. Both Craig and Hannah have visited Quinta do Romeu and we can attest not only to its beauty, but its remarkable situation that brings about wines of such elegance and finesse, full of character emanating all that it encompasses.

"Moinho do Gato" is a co-ferment of traditional Douro grapes varieties, mainly Tinta Barroca, but also Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional. The grapes are fully destemmed before fermenting in traditional lagares, and finished by aging in cement tanks.

The fruit is pure and captured through aromas of fresh red fruit. The palate is light yet intense with flavor, accentuated by bright acidity and finishing with floral hints and soft tannins. This should easily be your house red, when unsure what you're cooking for dinner, this will lend itself in so many ways, with such versatility!
