Menina d'Uva Vinho Tinto PalombaTabula Rasa Shop
Palomba is made of 90% Negreda, also known as Mouratón in Spain. The vine is known to produce big, juicy, dark-colored berries but with surprisingly very little tannin. It’s mixed with other reds few outside of Portugal have heard of, like Uva de Rei, Moscatel Preta, Moscatel Roxo, among others.
"While the Trás-os-Montes is known for heavy wines, Menina d’uva couldn’t be much further from that style. Here, Aline Domingues has begun to modernize the wines in the best possible way: indigenous local grape varieties, organic farming, naked wines made through gentle extraction and a low-tech, heavily thought out, soft-touch approach."
