Prunus Dão Tinto 2020
The Dão region is one of the oldest and one of the most complex regions of Portugal. The only one with thick layer of snow during the winter. On the hills of the highest Portuguese mountain Serra de Estrela the vines fight with frost or with baking sun. As an effect Prunus delivers personality, elegance, freshness and softness. The indigenous grapes give aromas and flavours that captivate and seduce and become unmistakable and unforgettable. Yet, the Dão is not only famous for its elegant wines, but also for its succulent and sweet Cova da Beira cherries. These plump and juicy fruits are so revered that entire festivals are created in their honour, which is why this wine has been created with equal expression. Perfect for picnics, Prunus Tinto is light, elegant and reminiscent of these beloved red cherries. A blend of Jaen (80%), Tinta Roriz (10%), Alfrocheiro Preto (5%) and Touriga Nacional (5%) the wine spends 6 months ageing in 225 litre old French and Portuguese oak barrels followed by minimum of 6 months in the bottle prior to release. The finished wine offers elegance on a grand scale. Lightly oaked and perfectly balanced, with a silky texture and crisp edge. The nose is cram-packed with plums, mulberries, blackberries and anise. On the palate, black cherry and raspberry fruit tones with creamy and chocolaty oak flavours. Delicious with poultry and pork dishes.

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this.
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!
If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
Really lovely wine (Prunus Dão Tinto 2019) at a great price, delivered quickly without any fuss. Fantastic
This wine is packed with the aroma and flavour of bursting berries. It's so smooth to drink and excellent value for money. Definitely fights and delivers above its weight. Great with food or simply linger over a glass (or two) on its own.
