2008 Poeira, Jorge Moreira, Douro

Poeira, Jorge Moreira, Douro
From the dramatic schistous terraces of the Douro this is probably the best table wine in Portugal. Jorge Moreira farms 25 parcels on north-facing sites, a picturesque mosaic of indigenous varieties, principally Touriga Nacional, Tinto Roriz and Touriga Francesca. With traditional lagare foot-trodden grapes and 16 months in new and one year old French oak, this wine achieves a healthy coincidence of the traditional and the modern, with bags of fruit and plenty of energy. Spicy, rich, textured, refined yet fruity, with notes of mulberry and dark cherry ….expressive yet restrained, a saucer-full of secrets.

Poeira, Jorge Moreira, Douro
In recent years the Douro Valley, home of port, has become one of Europe's most exciting red wine producers, crafting wines that manage to be at once powerful and elegant. That's certainly the case here – there's a deep well of black fruit and tannin, but there's lifted, almost floral aromas, too, in a seriously classy red.
