Maias Tinto (Portugal) 2019 Tinto
Quinta das Mais, based in the Dão region in northern Portugal. Wines from this region are taking the world by storm. In the Winesale office we were blown away by the range. Intense, hearty, balanced and unique wines.
High altitude vineyard, Dao. A blend of local varieties Jaen, Alfrochero, Touriga Nacional, creamy, soft palate, complexity and soft red fruits, delicious and great value. The Dao is a hot continental climate but parts are covered by a high plateau and some of the vineyard sites are located here at a over 600 metres above sea level. Quinta das Maias is one of those estates. The 15 hectares of vines are in different parcels and all are organic. This red wine punches well above its weight, balanced and fruity showing brambly black fruit and herbs but with a sense of the granitic soils and a long savoury finish.
This was a real hit last time worth every cent.
