Doravante Bairrada Tinto


Nuno’s philosophy is in keeping with this. In his own words, his wines are “a pursuit for balance with the utmost respect for nature”.

Think of Doravante as an old-school claret, with lighter red fruit flavour and fresh pencil shaving mineral character. The blend is Baga and the better-known Touriga Nacional, fresh and elegant and long. So delicious and such an exciting region of Portugal.

Excellent served with strong dark meat and game dishes
