Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Deep and lively Ruby colour.
The wine is full-bodied and has very appealing red fruit driven aromas.
On the palate, fresh and youthful with raspberry and cherry flavours, combined with a long and intense finish.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 1 year
Dow’s is entirely owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Symington family, Port producers since the 19th Century. The family, whose experience dates back over 100 years, has supervised all the vineyards, winemaking and the ageing of this wine. Dow’s owns two of the Douro’s finest Quintas, Senhora da Ribeira and Bomfim. These were acquired in 1890 and 1896, making Dow’s one of the first houses to invest in premium vineyards.
Douro is a Portuguese wine region centered around the Douro River in the Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro region. It is sometimes referred to as the Alto Douro (upper Douro), as it is located some distance upstream from Porto, sheltered by mountain ranges from coastal influence. It is very hot during the summer reaching temperature in excess of 40 degrees celcius in the summer perfect for the indigenious grape varieties of this region. The region has Portugal's highest wine classification as a Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC). While the region is associated primarily with Port wine production (fortified wine), the Douro also produces table wine (non-fortified wines).
