      Decent Drink

      Now I'm not going to be pretend to be someone who understands wine. I'm not even going to say I like wine - in fact it generally tastes all the same to me, and makes my face go red and blotchy.

      However, last week I actually found a wine which I appreciated - I had it in a restaurant, and it was quite an unexpected experience.

      The wine was Vista TR's tinta roriz, which is a Portuguese Red.

      I don't want to go into the flavour in great detail, and compare the taste (like some people do) to ridiculous things like 'warm soil', 'tarmac' or 'terry nutkins' - in fact I don't think I could even if I wanted to. What I can say however, is that the flavour is 'full', and is predominantly fruity rather than spicy.

      I think I liked it because it wasn't too acidic and is a fairly easy drinking product.

      The blurb on the bottle says it has the flavour of "dark chewy fruit' - a good structure with no hard edges and good length." I guess this translates as 'a decent drink' in wine speak.

      It's also pointed out that "Vista TR is made from 85% Tinta Roriz and 15% Touriga Nacional grapes cultivated in Alianca's new 360 hectare Quinta d'Aguiar property in Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo in the region of Beiras".

      With a guide price of around six quid (£14 in the restaraunt), I recommend giving this a go. Perhaps if you aren't a wine drinker like me, you'll like it too.

      I'd be interested in seeing some comments from experienced wine -drinkers to let me know if this is actually any good - or if it's just me being too easily impressed.

      The wine has an ABV of 13%.
