Tasting Notes
Founded by winemaker José Neiva Correia in 2008 DFJ Vinhos now produces 6 million bottles spread over 110 different wines. Vega, named after the brightest star in the night sky,is made from Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional from the Douro Valley, fermented in tank with 30 days of punching down of the skins for best extraction of colour and tannins and then 3 months aging in oak barriques. The resultant wine is juicy and ripe but has the complex spicy notes and savoury tannins of a classic Douro red.
