Porca de Murça 2015

Porca de Murça is Douro's leading brand, having celebrated 85 years of existence in 2013, and becoming one of Portugal's oldest wine brands. The brand originated from a folktale from the small village of Vila de Murça, in the Douro Valley.

It is said that at the time, there was a large female boar living in the woods near the village that was responsible for the destruction of the fields and its plantations. Having been, for many years, a torment for people of the village, they one day decided to unite the best hunters of the region to hunt down the boar. A statue was erected and placed in the Centre of the Village as a tribute to this mighty boar, making it an icon of the village and region.

Very light flavour. I cleary noticed toasty notes. Good acidity for my taste.
The Porca de Murça pairs perfectly with meat.
I love to sharing this wine with friends.

Fresh and tasty taste Tinto Porca de Murça makes it the most sought after wine from the Douro region, and is always the recommended daily as the preferred accompaniment to meals. A young, elegant wine with an attractive color. Fruity and aromatic, this wine demonstrates all its freshness through a soft proof start and end strong thanks to its balanced acidity.

TASTING NOTES:
- With no oak ageing, it shows a clean, deep and bright ruby coloured wine with red berry and cherry notes showing intensity and freshness. Ripe fruit flavours, excellent structure, velvety and very well balanced
