2011 Churchill Estates Douro- $17
This wine from Portugal is a blend of 3 different grapes-
40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca and 30% Tinta Roriz.
Portugal is often overlooked as a top wine region on the world stage. It doesn’t get the same love that France, Italy, Germany and Napa get, but Portugal is an incredible wine growing region that grows some very different grapes. It’s for this reason that I really enjoy serving wines from Portugal. While everyone else is pouring the same boring Chards and Cabs, I like to uncork something different and interesting like this bottle.
This wine is perfect for that. This is a red blend that tastes like an elegant $75 wine, but at $17, it’s an absolute steal!
