Tinta Roriz is one of several grape varietals grown in Portugal's Douro Valley; across the Spanish border, the grape is known as Tempranillo. Other well-known varietals include Touriga Francesa, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca, and Tinta Amarela, all of which are used to make table wines and Ports. Quinta do Crasto is made up of several old vineyard sites dedicated to one or more of these grapes, and the quinta regularly produces single-varietal table wines from these high grade vineyards.
A single variety Douro table wine made from 100% Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo). The wine was aged for 14 months in American oak barrels, and shows smoky vanillan characteristics with intense varietal fruit flavors of spice, pepper and berry.
