Superb single-varietal Tinta Roriz (the Portuguese name for Tempranillo): a dark, brooding and slightly spicy expression of the grape, packed with cherries and sweet plums and furled in a cloud of woodsmoke and Portuguese panance.
Pairs beautifully with roast beef or lamb, barbeque sausages, pork chops or medium-aged cheeses.
Single-varietal Tinta Roriz are a rarity in Portugal, however, this is an emblematic Douro grape, which produces spicy and characterful wines. This Tinta Roroz is selected from the best plots on teh Quinta do Crasto estate from vines of 34 years of age, where they are grown on raditional terraces with a South-East aspect.
Grapes from the best Tinta Roriz plots are taken to the winery in small boxes and rigorously inspected on arrival. They are first foot-trodden in the traditional stone tank (“lagar”) and then transferred to open stainless steel tanks where the cap is pressed down with robotic pistons. Fermentation takes 10 days in a temperature controlled environment. Once alcoholic fermentation is complete, the must is gently pressed using hydraulic presses, and matured for 18 months in new French oak barrique barrels.
