Jorge Rosas inherited a beautiful small vineyard high up the Douro Valley in Portugal and he took the brave decision not to make ordinary wine but instead to try and make extraordinary wine here. The vineyards first wine is Quinta Touriga Cha which has in a few short years been recognised as one of the regions finest wines.
Puro is his latest release and comes from the vineyards younger wines. It is intended to be a simpler more accessible earlier drinking wine that still retains the elegance and charm that marks out the estates first wine.
Deep purple in colour the fruit bursts from the glass, dark mulberry and plum fruit wrapped up in leather and a hint of exotic spice. It has an amount of grip that will ease over time but will be fine now if enjoyed with food. Decanter magazine awarded the wine 4 stars and 17 points out of 20 which reflects how good this wine is.
