Quinta do Crasto
Quinta do Crasto Superior 2016, Douro, Portugal - 1.5l
Like any fine red wine, Crasto Douro Superior is an experience of multiple elements. The deep colour shade of the wine is visually appealing, and ghat delight is matched by the aroma. Fresh berries and spices mingle to create a scent that is sure to set your mouth watering. Thankfully, the bold flavour matches this expectations. Gentle on the palate with an impressive volume, this wine offers a fruity, lingering finish, with the tannins seemingly wrapped in a velvet glove. Immaculately balanced and effortlessly drinkable, this red wine is one of the finest choices available from the Iberian peninsula.

WHAT IT GOES WITH
As a well-balanced red wine, this vintage is best enjoyed with hearty winter fare. Pour yourself a glass alongside a perfectly grilled steak or a red meat stew and you will find the perfect accompaniment to your warming meal. Leave some for dessert, though; this wine is also an exemplary companion to a well-chosen cheese board.
