The classic red from this prestigious Dao estate. Touriga makes up about half the blend, with other varietals also from block-planted vineyards at the property.
Aged in French oak for 10 months.
That Touriga component contributes the mulberry fruit character which characterises Roques Tinto, but as with classic Dao blends, this is more than a sum of its parts.
At the International Wine Challenge 2014, Quinta dos Roques Tinto 2011 won not only the Dao Trophy, but also the overall Portuguese Red Wine Trophy.
