Zom Douro Reserva 2015
Aldi 8.99
Drinker Rating 90


I know people who genuinely buy a wine because they like the look of the bottle - nothing else counts unless it's got a pretty label. Well this wine will appeal as it has a really groovy look, the bottle has been nipped in at the ankles and it think that it not only looks great it's also not just a pretty face.

It's a blend of the Portugese workhorse grapes Tourigas Nacional and Franca. The Douro is really going places and this is a great example of fruit a forward wine, all ripe plum and blackberry with a decent tannic structure. It's well made and serious and just what we need in the autumn.

Cheers!
