Vinho Tinto Eternal Wine Book

The Eternal Winebook

This is my personal version of an eternal Book of Portuguese Wines. The book is eternal in the way that it never stays the same. Now and then new pages are added, or the old pages are rewritten, updated or corrected.

I wondered which wine to choose for a smoked ham with vegetables, mustard and melted butter. It is a light summer dish, but with a lot of flavor, which comes partly from the smoked and salty ham and partly from the mustard. Previously I had good experiences with wines made from Touriga Nacional for this dish, and today I chose this Dão varietal. It is a dark wine with scents of plums, chocolate and vanilla, with some tannin and a long finish. The wine went very well with our meal.

This wine was made from two of the famous Beiras grapes: Baga and Touriga Nacional. Baga is a winemaker Luís Pato icon.

It is a dark red wine, with a purple tinge. It has an intense aroma of red berries and vanilla. The taste is fruty, with prominent tannins and moderate acid. The wine is in my opinion best enjoyed with food. We had it for grilled chicken and fried vegetables, to which it fitted really well.
