Quinta Dos Roques Qunita Do Correio Dao Tinto 2009

Member Review by zufrieden:

I have not had Dao wine for some time, and this mid-rank number from Quinta do Correio has bracing acidity on the palate with flavours of cranberry and wild red huckleberry. Soft and approachable, the wine is good value. There is also a smooth creamy finish that should appeal to a broad cross-section of wine drinkers. Try it.

A new winery was then built, combining the modem with the traditional, the science and technology with art. Side by side, in perfect symbiosis, electronic presses appeared alongside granite "lagares", stainless steel vats with k barrels, cold systems with underground cellars.
