Covela’s unoaked Escolha Tinto, a blend of the Port wine mainstay Touriga Nacional and international grapes, has become somewhat of a cult wine in Europe. “Deep coloured, this unoaked red … is really fresh and vibrant, with a gravelly, earthy edge to the sweet, focused dark cherry and blackberry fruit. Savoury and food-friendly, with good acidity. Quite serious.” - Jamie Goode (The WIne Anorak). “Just pulses with life and vivacity. Low yields on sand and granite give something seriously interesting but quite ready to drink.” - Jancis Robinson. Colour: Intense ruby. Nose: Complex with wild, black fruit, black cherries and a hint of menthol. Palate: Dry and elegant. Nicely-balanced structure. Ripe black fruits, soft tannins and a long, elegant finish. To be enjoyed at slightly below room temperature, say 16ºC to 18ºC (61ºF to 65ºF).
