"Next on the programme was Fonte do Gonçalvinho, a new 12-hectare estate run by a Franco-Portuguese couple where the wines are more modern and polished.
 I really like the 2010 Rosado here: Dão rosés tend to be vinous and serious, not your ephemeral seaside Provençal salmony pink but winter wines to be enjoyed with rustic food. Given their 5–8€ price brackets, they deserve to be better known.
Gonçalvinho makes a varietal Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional that ally the Portuguese grapes’ depth of spicy flavour with some roundness from oak, which however is deftly used.
 The top wine is ‘? Inconnu’, an undisclosed blend of grapes with, in the 2010 vintage, a sweeter, caster sugar-like expression and big body; the acidity is what really makes this wine, and Dão reds in general, so much exciting and vibrant."
