Lively colour, with ruby tones, and a fruity aroma including the floral notes of the Touriga Nacional grape. In the mouth, red fruits dominate. The elegance of Casal Garcia Douro makes it the best choice for moments of conviviality and sharing. This wine shows its best when enjoyed with grilled white meat, Italian food or roasted cod.
Casal Garcia was born in 1939, a year in which the vintage was particularly good. Returning by train from the grape harvest in the Douro, the French oenologist Eugène Hélisse decided to interrupt his journey to Oporto after passing the vines of the Quinta da Aveleda, in Penafiel. Dressed in white, and with a straw hat to ward off the heat of the end of summer, he began to walk towards the property’s cellar.
