Porca de Murca Douro 2017
|Brand||Porca de Murca|
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Tinto Porca de Murça is an unoaked blend of 30% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz, 30% Touriga Nacional and 20% Tinta Barroca. It comes in at 13% alcohol. The big fruit of this vintage helps this entry-level wine a lot. It tastes just great. In the grand scheme of things, there isn't a lot of depth or power, of course, but it is a very nice achievement at the price level. For the moment, it has respectable concentration for the level and bold fruit without seeming candied and sweet. It is worth leaning up on this a little just now. It may be one of the best in the brand. It will not reward aging, though. Needless to say, it's hard to find real wine at this price-this is a nice bargain if you drink it very young and perhaps a little cool.
