Lidl, Azinhaga de Ouro Reserva, Douro Valley, Portugal 2021
(at Carousel, London W1, 18 Apr 2023)
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2025
The Douro red in the Summer Wine Tour has the edge on this one, but it's also more pricey. This is a straightforward, fairly full-bodied red, easy drinking and fairly commercial in style, but with attractive, polished black fruit weight, and framed by some subtle oak toastiness.
