From: Lisbon, Portugal
Blend: 70% Tinta Roriz, 20% Castelao, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Taste: The nose initially smells pleasantly fruity, reminiscent of Beaujolais. Brambly berries, ripe bing cherries, a pop of fresh raspberry and a core of woodsy earth with a touch of cocoa. The palate follows its aromas, but with more baking spice, and toasty cocoa than you'd expect, balancing out all that pretty fruit. I recommend to serve this slightly chilled, especially when on warm nights.
Pairing: You could very well go with a Beaujolais-esque Charcuterie theme to pair with this wine. It also makes us crave sausages...or a Ruben Sandwich! If you don't feel like making your own, we love the Ruben that Ken's Market makes, as well as the Reubenator from Valhalla Sandwiches.
About. Vidigal is a family-owned winery that produces wines from all six of the top winemaking regions of Portugal. It was founded in 1960 but has roots that go well back into the 19th century. The man at the helm today is Antonio Mendes Lopez who, having spent many years in the wine business in Scandinavia, brings a somewhat different perspective to Portuguese wine and what can be achieved with modern style combined with tradition. A blend primarily of Tinto Roriz and Castelao with a little Cabernet Sauvignon added in, fermented in stainless steel and made in a decidedly international style, this wine is bright and juicy with flavors of berry, plum, and spice with a touch of mocha.
