Wine Expert Note:

Churchill's Quinta Da Gricha Douro is an exceptional wine from the Douro region in Portugal. This wine showcases the unique characteristics of the region, offering a rich and complex flavor profile. On the nose, you can expect intense aromas of ripe black fruits, such as blackberries and plums, accompanied by hints of spices and floral notes. These aromas are a true reflection of the terroir and the careful winemaking process. The palate is equally impressive, with a full-bodied and velvety texture that coats the mouth. The flavors are well-balanced, with a harmonious blend of dark fruits, such as black cherries and blackcurrants, complemented by subtle oak nuances. The wine displays a remarkable depth and complexity, with layers of flavors unfolding with each sip. The tannins are firm yet refined, providing structure and a lingering finish. This wine has great aging potential, allowing it to develop further complexity and elegance over time. Read more
Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
