Profile

Smell

Blue and black fruit notes dominate the nose, with aromas of dark plum, black cherry, and wild blueberry. There's an underlining brininess to the nose, with hints of sea salt and olives, along with aromatic cedar and smoke.

Taste

Full-bodied and grippy, this punchy red is loaded with ample red and black fruit flavours. Tannins are dense and grainy, and the palate has great concentration through the long, dry finish.

Pairing

This full-bodied blend would pair beautifully with a pork roast served with garlic mashed potatoes and seasonal root veggies.

Aromas and Flavours

Blueberry

Eating handfuls of berries straight from the bush, your fingers stained purple for days to come.

Blackberry

A little sweet, a little tart, this black fruit is rather quiet but persistent.

Stone

Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?

Cherry

Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!

Plum

Sweet, fruity and sensual, similar stone fruit aromas to a peach, but without the 'fuzziness.'

Description

Falua is based in the Tejo region of Portugal, and has since its inception in 1994 worked to be the benchmark producer of this unique area. Located in central Portugal, just inland from Lisbon, Tejo boasts the longest grape-growing history in the country, having been first planted to vines in Roman times. Today, the region is home to a rich diversity of native cultivars like Aragonez and Touriga Nacional growing alongside international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Falua's Duas Castas (or "two lineages") range pays tribute to the shared importance of indigenous and international grapes, and their red is a blend of Aragonez and Cabernet Sauvignon. Both grape varieties are fermented in stainless steel to preserve freshness, and the final blend should be enjoyed over the next three years at 18 C.
