Having recently been to Taste Morgan and enjoying the experience, a couple bottles were purchased for later enjoyment.
Both were from the Lee Family Farm Label. In 2005, Dan introduced a second label, Lee Family Farms, intended to provide a fun outlet for his exploration of “alternative” varietals. These wines were absolutely delightful and at **** prices should be a standard at at everyones dinner table.
How refreshing it was to taste these lovely wines that are also not very common, and that can be had for such reasonable prices.
The purchased wine that was pulled from the wine fridge to be enjoyed and is this weeks WineWalkabout WW, was the lovely 2011 Lee Family Farm Rio Tinto (a blend of 61% Touriga Francesa and 39% Touriga Nacional). On the palate, it is soft and velvet smooth with ripe concentrated blackberry and black cherry flavors, good acidity and a nice soft finish. This wine rates 6-7 and ****. A great drop at a great price!
Go by and visit Taste Morgan, tell em we sent you and say G'day.
Happy Tasting Adventures,
