LCBO Note Status
This is a blend of Touriga Nacional and Alfrocheiro, which is no surprise, as these two are the most important varieties in Dão's red blends. When used to craft rosé, they produce intense red cherry, strawberry and raspberry tones with a bright, juicy food-friendly acidity. This will be an ideal barbecue wine capable of pairing with grilled chicken, pork, ribs or salmon, as well as summer salads. Price $ 13.95
