Casal dos Jordoes- NV
A Port lover's dream. Made from Touriga Francesca, Tinta Roriz and others too, it's a dense, inky-purple colour, and is a richly hedonistic experience (even in half bottle!). Complex, super ripe berried fruits are gently spiced, and its sweet and unctious palate is both elegant and balanced too, with real length. Casal dos Jordoes was the first and indeed only fully certified Port producer. Try their Tawny and Vintage too, all are drinking very well now, but will age gracefully. Remember also, there is no need to drink the bottle at one sitting, once opened it will keep well for a couple of weeks at least. Enjoy near a warming fire on its own, or with mature cheeses.
Casal dos Jordoes
Arlindo da Costa Pinto e Cruz’s vineyards are planted on schistous, split terraces on the steep slopes of the Douro. Amongst the vines you will see olive trees growing alongside touriga nacional, touriga francesa, tinta roriz and tinta barroca – the grape varieties that are blended together to make his much-loved and multi-award-winning ports.
