Arribas Tinto 'Saroto' 2019Regular price £20.00
There's off-the-beaten-track and then there's the region of Trás-os-Montes ("beyond the mountains"), which lies in the (long) shadow of the Douro Valley. With a Masters degree in Oenology apiece and experience between them at Niepoort, Tahbilk and Domaine Pacalet, Ricardo Alves and Frederico Machado - barely in their 30s - are just getting started here. A field blend of indigenous varieties, this has bright, crunchy berry fruit and just the right amount of funkiness to keep things peppy.
