Description

Invincible Number Two Douro Tinto 2020 displays lovely ripe black and red berry and plum flavours and complex spicy layers with a hint of orange peel – the complexity coming from the old vines which are over 50 years’ old. This wine has seen oak but it’s a very light touch just to give it a bit more of a rounded mouthfeel and the tannins are soft and smooth. One of my current favourite wines, though I know I shouldn’t have favourites!

 

This is an amazingly smooth Portuguese red wine, Invincible Number Two Douro Vinho Tinto 2020 from Companhia de Vinhos Invencível, a collaboration between renowned wine makers, Rita Marques who has been described as “the changing face of Douro winemaking” & Marc Kent of Boekenhoutskloof, whose wines I have been stocking for several years. They had previously worked together in South Africa and elsewhere in Portugal before buying an estate in Casais do Douro where this wine is produced. Number Two is the name for the range of Reserva wines. As you would expect from these wine makers, they practice minimal intervention producing wines that represents the local varieties and terroir. This field blend is from old vines of several local varieties like Tinta Roriz (AKA Tempranillo in Spain) and port grapes like Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca.

How to enjoy this wine

This wine is more fruity than many Douro reds so whilst it will pair well with strong meat flavours, don’t go for anything too rustic as the fruit may get lost. Slow braised red meats, steak or pork would be perfect.

 

Serve at: 14 – 16°C

“Deep crimson. Nicely integrated nose, and very attractive texture with the bite of the Douro. Very interesting and distinctive. Well done! Lots more evolution to come. It should be broachable by Christmas but is very youthful.”
