If you like your wines from off the beaten track, you should be exploring Portugal right now. If the hundreds of indigenous grapes aren’t esoteric enough for you, there is an explosion of experimental winemaking taking place. Duckman is a prime example.
This red blend is 85% Baga and 15% Touriga Nacional... from four different vintages, to keep things interesting. The resulting complexity is utterly beguiling. After the initial burst of rich dark fruits comes a slow and balanced drift into an earthy, savoury finish that lingers delightfully. A quacking good wine!
