Natalie's Score: 89/100
From Herdade do Rocim, Vale De Mata Red is a full-bodied Portuguese red wine blend of Touriga Nacional, Aragonêz and Syrah, fleshy and spicy with ripe dark fruits, blackberry, dark cherry and spicy pepper flavours zesty on the palate. The wine is named after a small vineyard once owned by the grandfather of Catarina Vieira, the current winemaker and owner of Herdade do Rocim.
Food pairings: roast leg of lamb, grilled chicken, venison steak.
