The hand of the winemaker Luís Duarte is behind Herdade dos Grous. A very limpid wine of intense ruby color with maroon trim. In the nose we experience very fruity aromas, red fruits of the forest, like the raspberry, or even black, like the blackberry. At the end we have a marked touch of caramel. It is an open wine. In the mouth it turns out to be tasty, unctuous and very fresh. It has a good retronasal. Structured wine, long drink, sweet, delicious. € 10.


Pairing: Given its profile, this wine pairs pretty well with a wide spectrum of dishes. From white meats, blue fish, rice, or pasta. In our case it was accompanied by a pairing of carpaccio of tuna and salmon, and a rice of razor clams.
