This has got to be the very best red wine I’ve sampled so far this year. Not sampled actually, more… savoured, relished, enjoyed, consumed… maybe even actually drank. A delight from start to finish with a lovely smooth, delish palate topped with a fragrant warm aroma. A red from the Portuguese end of the Douro made from Touriga Franca (50%), Touriga Nacional (30%) and Tinta Roriz (20%), so basically the crème of the grape varieties grown in the region. Even better is the price – Tanners have it listed for just £8.50 a bottle.

It is sub-titled “from the Golden Duoro Valley”

Tons de Duorum is inspired by the bright colours that result from the reflection of the sun on the Douro river, creating different tones in the vineyard.

Which is nice. Tons de Duorum Vinho Tinto is this weeks Sunday Wine Shot.
