Wine Tasting Note: Duque de Viseu Tinto, 2002, Dão, Portugal
It actually has a very port-like flavour but one without the weight and added alcohol. So it is medium to full-bodied with a complex spicy palate. A nice level of tannin and a food-friendly red berry bite on the finish.
Scribblings Rating - 88/100 [3.5 out of 5]
Half a bottle went into poaching pears an accompaniment for Roast Chicken Stuffed with Pears, Pistachios, Sausage and Bacon as suggested in a new Spanish cookbook - 1080 Recipes by Simone and Inés Ortega. Chilean Pinot Noir was a better match with the food, the Duque de Viseu being a little heavy to match well. The Pinot also had a little sweetness of fruit that mixed with the stuffing and those poached pears to a more harmonious degree than the Portuguese wine.
