Camarate (also known as “Castelão Nacional”) is a red wine grape variety used mostly in the Bairrada region of northern-central Portugal. It is not one of the most distinguished Iberian wine grapes, and makes soft, low-acid red wines, which are most useful as a blending component. A splash of full-bodied, low-acid Camarate works wonders turning light, high acid red wines into something relatively soft and easy drinking.
