Dao Indigena Red 2021, Adega de Penalva, Portugal
Lots of flavour, only 12.5% - everyone loves this Dão red
This is probably one of the most popular wines in the shop, not just because it’s about a tenner, but because it really performs for the price.
We like to think of it as a weeknight wonder. The sort of wine you reach for when you fancy a couple of glasses with dinner on a Wednesday but don’t want to splash out.
Made by a co-operative in the Dão wine region, it is a blend of Touriga Nacional (the main red grape of Portugal), Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo), and Jaen (aka Mencia). Soft, juicy, not too light, not too heavy. Damn tasty
