Cheda Tinto, Lavradores de Feitoria, Douro, Portugal, 2017

£12.06

It’s rare I come across Portuguese wines where I think ‘yes, us English bastards can drink this.’ But it happened here and with the white CHEDA too. Under £10 for this is just fucking stupid. I love the presentation, I love the blend and I know you are going to love this whoever, where ever and whatever you are. Buy it and enjoy and if you don’t…then tough shit, you have no soul.

Producer Profile

Lavradores translates as ‘farmers’ in Portuguese. Cheda wines are made by 15 families of farmers that have been making wines in the Douro for decades. Together they own 19 Quintas throughout the three sub-regions of the Douro Valley. They came together to share resources, expertise, tradition and innovation. To make wines that reflect the great diversity of terroir in the Douro under one roof, with one approach and one winemaking team. Paulo Ruão and Olga Martins are the incredibly talented winemakers behind Lavradores de Feitoria. Their Cheda range offers fantastic value from the heart of the Douro Valley – bright, youthful, approachable styles of wine that fit comfortably onto any shelf or wine list.

Viticulture

The grapes come from the family vineyards planted along the Douro valley that have an average age of 25 to 30 years.

Tasting Note

Vbrant red colour. Extremely fruity, revealing ripe dark plums and cherry aromas. Fresh and fruity on the palate, with soft and elegant tannins. Silky and very well-balanced acidity. Generous fruit with an elegant and very savoury finish.

Food Matching

This deliciously fresh wine will pair well with rich poultry dishes and red meat.
