Minho Covela Palhete By Quinta de Covela 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Rating of 88 Points by Jamie Goode in WINE ANORAK. Rating of 16/20 Points by Jancis Robinson in PURPLE PAGES. "This Portuguese offering blends native Touriga Nacional with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, producing a juicy, firmly structured wine, packed with herbal-accented, red and black fruit flavours. Great with Mediterranean starters or grilled fish." by Peter Mc Combie MW in Restaurant Magazine. "Light red. Very attractive mouthful of characterful fruit. Saignée of Touriga Nacional, Cabernet and Merlot from a very progressive family producer in northern Portugal. Very smart, modern packaging." in Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages. "Nice deep pink colour. Fresh, slightly sweet herby, strawberry fruit dominates. It is quite concentrated and full, with a bit of structure and some herby warmth. Quite a serious grown-up rosé. Very good+ 88/100." by Jamie Goode in Wine Anorak. Percentage Grape: Touriga Nacional, Merlot and Cabernet Franc Alcohol Percentage: 13.5 % Sugar Rate: 0-5 g/l Total Acidity: 5,5 g/l
