Wine Tasting Note: Falua Tagus Creek Shiraz Touriga Nacional Rosé, 2007, Ribatejo, Portugal
Stockist: Waitrose, Booths, Tesco Price: £4.99 [More: Adegga / Snooth]
Deep in colour - almost a light red - and a light cherry aroma. Dry, clean, soft with a long spicey finish. A gentle bitter edge to the berry fruit flavours gives interest and 'lift'. Alcohol 13.5%.
Not an 'in your face wine' - no sweetness, subtle aroma, juicy flavours - but serve with a plate of garlic prawns or a barbecued sausage and this sings!

The Falua society is a progressive and forward thinking wine making company owned by Joao Portugal Ramos. The company now has over 100 hectares of vines under their own control, from planting, through to pruning, picking, fermenting and bottling. The Ribatejo has massive potential for producing good, honest, easy drinking wine, with character and flavour, as well as finer wines in smaller parcels. Falua has taken grip of the situation and stands virtually alone in the Ribatejo in developing the massive potential of the region in a dynamic, market driven way. These are wines of terrific value, ideally suited to British Market tastes. A brand new winery, recently constructed, stands testament to their commitment in the region."
