Sergio's Pick

This red blew us away when we were searching for a wine to pair with a lamb dish for one of our wine dinners here at the shop. Intoxicating aromas of cassis, figs, cherry pith, iron, vanilla bean and cacao dominate the aromas. The acidity thrives past a concentrated, silky texture before a mild velvety tannic bite introduces a long, spicy and slightly smoky finish. Masterful oak integration. Pure class.

Conceito is a relatively new producer based in the Douro Superior. Young winemaker Rita Ferriera is allowed full licence to do her best with the grapes from her mother Carla Ferriera’s properties, and the results so far have been very impressive. There are four estate vineyards, all in the Teja valley, which has climatic conditions a little cooler than the rest of the Douro Superior
