Winemaker Notes

Alvaro Castro DAC Tinto is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Jaen, Roriz and Alfrocheiro, grown in granite soils with rows of sand and clay. The vines are between 3 and 65 years old and located at an average altitude of 550 meters. The result is a light-bodied, bright and graceful wine offering notes of crushed herbs, cracked green peppercorns and fresh red fruit, leading to a long finish accented by hints of peppery spice.

Wine & Spirits
A blend of touriga nacional, jaen (mencía), tinta roriz (tempranillo) and alfrocheiro, DAC is consistently one of the best buys from Dão. This vintage has a crab-apple-red blush to the fruit, which is light and airy, fresh and sweet. Give it a splash in a decanter to bring out the scent of rosehips, then serve with roast chicken sausages.
