Quinta do Correio Tinto
Hearty Dao red that sings with hedgerow fruits
A lovely producer from the Dão in central northern Portugal, with pine tree and eucalyptus ringed vineyards planted on the granitic hills of the region.
Correio means "post" and the vineyard originally belonged to the village postman who used to make wines and hand them out in demi-johns to those coming to collect or drop off packages and letters. A service you wish Royal Mail would adopt!
A perfectly clear dark ruby colour, brilliant, with an intense fruit bouquet, with wild berries and pine needle notes. On the palate it is very subtle with soft tannins and a nice finish."We fell in love with the story behind this wine – and then tasted it and fell a bit more. The vineyard was originally owned by the village postman who would hand out his rustic wine along with the day’s letters and parcels, hence the word Correio on the label which means post in Portuguese. Wonderfully aromatic with a herbaceous undertone, this easy drinking red would be a great addition to barbecue meats as the weather warms up but is equally well suited to hearty tomato based stews."
