Azamor Azamor Bottling Note
Once I sampled this and said to the wine merchant "what is that lovely bouquet?" to which he replied "It's my Azamor".
"No it's not, it's really quite good" I replied. Hilarity ensued.
The wine itself is a mix of Portuguese varietals including Touriga Franca, Trincadeira, Touriga Nacional and Alicante Boushet, with some Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot thrown in. It's aged in both French and American oak barrels and is a medium-bodied, fruity red.
Nose: Red berry fruit and spice.
Palate: Dark fruit. Very thick and slightly savoury - a very interesting balance. Good tannin structure.
