Dona Ermelinda DOC Castelão (2004)

Dona Ermelinda Palmela DOC 2004This Dona Ermelinda Palmela DOC 2004 is made from the Castelão grape in Portugal. Interestingly, Tom chose this wine to go with leftover pizza. We see from a previous post that we chose this wine for pizza another time! We also had it with home-made soup.

This Portuguese wine is medium body and fruity. In the glass it is deep purple rimmed with garnet. The nose is a very fresh spice. On the palate is soft tannins, oak, dried fruit, and fresh cherries. This is a keeper: bold, audacious, and delightful!

Tom: This Dona Ermelinda Palmela DOC 2004 has a fruity (blackberries) and slightly vegetal nose. It comes across as a big red, and so it should be good with pizza.
