Giesta Dao 2010
From one of Portugal’s most famous red wine regions, a serious, silky, barrel-aged gem
Portugal cultivates a myriad of exciting red grapes with challenging names, but rest assured, in expert hands they give eye-opening flavours and character capable of thrilling any but the most staid of wine lovers.Giesta is the personal project of Nuno Cancela de Abreu, a fourth-generation winemaker with a life-long passion for the traditional native grape varieties of the Dao region. It’s a blend of estate-grown Touriga Nacional, chosen for its ripe floral character, Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo), and Jaen, for its fruit and spice. This wine has a wonderful natural freshness, with floral highlights and succulent, ripe red fruit. Smooth, easy drinking on its own and just right for rich winter casseroles and Summer grills.
