Default One for Porto - Saturday's WOW!!!

This recommendation is for my friend Porto who kept making me pop into Morrisons not so long ago in the hunt for wine. I found some great examples in there, and this one has been recommended by Matthew Jukes in the "Weekend" supplement as his Wine of the Week.

2002 Durius Tinto, Arribes del Duero, Spain 3.49

This was reduced from 6.99 so definitely worth tracking down to see if it fits the bill. Matthew Jukes describes it thus:

"Durius is the Latin name for the mighty Duero/Douro River which flows from Spain into Portugal and on whose banks are situated the great vineyards that make Port. The Arribes del Duero region is a relatively new one and is found on the Spanish side of the border.

The wine is made from tempranillo, the noble grape that makes Rioja."

Described as having "blackcurrant fruit, dark chocolate and tobacco moments."

Ok, Porto, if you manage to pop in, let us know what you think. I might be heading off there today to see if I can grab a bottle and thereby breaking my week long abstinence!

Happy drinking!
Jane

Yes indeed Jane!

As I mentioned to you in chat I had got a couple of bottles and went back and got two more too!

Opened one last night and it is well worth a try at that price. A liitle different on first taste and I always let it breathe for up to an hour before hitting it.

As I say first impressions were very pleasant and an amazing rich strong colour. This was one to be sipped slowly over an evening and to be savoured. Warm hints of oaky vanilla, as described on the label and certainly if you like vanillas you will not be disappointed.

Well worth a try but I'm not sure how long the offer lasts.
