Pretexto, Tinto, Dao, 2018

10 cases
Equiv. £9.00 per bottle

Tasting Note:

The estate’s entry level red, Pretexto is sourced from both subzones to a fresh, easy going style. A four variety blend of Jaen, Tinto Roriz, Alfrochiero and Touriga Nacional fermented in stainless steel.

Ripe, peppery and juicy on the nose with some herb, forest fruit and pine notes on the palate.
