The 2017 Redoma is a field blend of typical grapes aged for 20 months in large and old wooden vats. It comes in at just 13% alcohol. This was the final blend and out of cask, but it was a couple of weeks from bottling when seen. Not showing any more stuffing than the Vertente, this does show more finesse. It has silky texture and impressive lift to the fruit. The structure here is better too, and that lift makes this fresh red a wine that will be a pleasure to drink. It's enlivening and almost mouthwatering. It will pair perfectly with food and age effortlessly. You can drink this young, as it is very refined, but the power does come out with air, so that would be a mistake. Giving it a few years in the cellar would be nice, for it and for you.

Region: Douro

The undisputed jewel in Portugal's crown is the beautiful wine region of Douro, located along the banks of the river from where it gets its name. The region itself is renowned around the world for its range of wonderfully aromatic fortified wines, as well as a wide variety of still red and white wines made from native grape varietals. Wineries in the Douro region utilize a huge amount of different local grapes for their characterful wines, but generally the most popular are made from Tinta Roriz, a rich and flavorful red wine grape related to Spain's flagship Tempranillo. However, there are plenty of different red and white grape varietals used in the region, all benefiting from the excellent hot weather and mineral rich terroir which characterizes the Douro valleys.

Country: Portugal

Most of us are quick to associate Portugal primarily with the excellent fortified wines which come out of the Porto area, but there is much more to Portuguese viticulture than just this. Perhaps the most popular still wines the country produces are the varieties from the Vinho Verde region, which uses grapes that do not achieve high doses of sugar, meaning the wines are at their best when young and full of natural, springy fruit flavors The wines of the Douro region have undergone many transformations in their flavor and character over the centuries; once regarded as a bitter wine, the exporters experimented with fortifying the wine with brandy. After several centuries, vintners found a balance in the modern age which is at once reminiscent of Port wine, yet with the structure and character closer to other fine Portuguese wines. Thanks to the appellation system of Portugal and the strict laws governing wine production, Portuguese wines continue to maintain their reputation for quality and the distinctive characteristics they carry.
