Portal Colheita Tinto 2009 tops Wine Enthusiast list

One of the latest offerings on the market from the Douro wine producers

“An elegant, structured, fine wine” was how Wine Enthusiast, the prestigious North American magazine for wine lovers, described the Portal Colheita Tinto 2009, one of the latest offerings on the market from the Douro wine producer.

The team of tasters decided to award 93 points to the wine, the highest score given by the magazine in the <> category. The publication states that “The Portal Colheita Tinto 2009 will age well in the bottle,” highlighting its “excellent acidity, firm tannins and aromas of red fruit.” A fresh, fruity wine such as only the Douro and Quinta do Portal know how to produce, it is made from 60% Tinta Roriz grapes, together with Touriga Nacional (25%) and Touriga Franca (15%) grape varieties.

The wine can be found on the market for a basic price of around 15 euros and is the perfect accompaniment for meat and game dishes, with the added advantage that it can be included in vegetarian menus. It is, however, versatile enough to harmonise with a wide variety of dishes. A total of 90,600 bottles are available for sale on the market.
