The Oddbins Take

We have a recipe for you. Take one world famous Port house (Ramos Pinto) and one incredibly prestigious Champagne producer (Louis Roederer). Add two very different vineyards in the Douro Valley, one hot, one cool. Stir in an even mix of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) and simmer gently in the Portuguese sunshine. Transfer part to French oak barrels and leave to relax for at least 12 months. The result is Duas Quintas. Serve heaped with praise and seasoned with medals and scores of 90/100.

Sarah Ahmed on thewinedetective.co.uk, 26/10/15: "I tasted this wine in the Douro the week before Oddbins’ press tasting in a line up of Duas Quintas reds from 1990 to 2013. It was one of my standout wines. In the exceptional Douro 2011 vintage this wine is markedly deep in hue with a youthful pink rim. A youthfulness which is reinforced by a formidably concentrated, still tightly coiled palate with prodigious ripe tannins to match. This will go some distance. It reveals exotic hints of coriander spice and bergamot dark currant/berry and chocolate palate as it opens up. Great structure – an outstanding wine – especially for £12!"
Duas Quintas is a well-structured and balanced red wine made from native Douro Valley grape varieties. The fruit is sourced from two estates, hence the name Duas Quintas ('Quinta' means Estate in Portuguese).
