in the hills near Meda in the Douro Superior Region of northern Portugal is
a small vineyard called Aveloso that Rita has been eying up for many years. She has been
planning a special red wine made from 100 year-old vines of local varieties* such as Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga franca, Jaen, Alfrocheiro and Bastardo; in 2015 she got her chance.
* Note the description "Vihno Tinto" (Red Wine). This is very typical of this region - there are so many varieties in this field (including whites), no variety dominates, it can only be described as "Red Wine" or a "Field Blend"
“That Rita has the capacity to surprise is a known quantity”…. “And when it comes to what’s in the bottle she certainly delivers” Sarah Ahmed thewinedetetcive.co.uk
