Blend of four indigenous varietals. Clear medium gold. Complex nose of cantaloupe, sharp pineapple, apple and cinnamon. Full-bodied with the spice and complexity of a Gewürz crossed with the body and fruit of a Viognier. Flavours of honey, pear, peach and rich apple seasoned with a dash of lime and some walnut bitterness. Terrific value. Will last another year.
An unfiltered style of LBV, the wine is opaque black/purple with a soaring bouquet of plum, blackberry, crème de cassis, raspberry, violets, raisins and spice. Concentrated, powerful and sweet, it is very much enjoyable right now but should age well for a decade.
Deeply coloured, this LBV dishes out intense plum, blackberry, dark cherry, raisin, chocolate and spice. Round, mouth-filling and sweet. Excellent length and ready to drink.
This red blend from Lisbon is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Syrah and Tinta Roriz. Fresh, juicy and easy drinking, there is plum, cherry, cassis, violets and black pepper. Solid length and tailored for grilled sausages or roast pork loin.
Clear, deep plum red. Nose of tart red berries and raisins with underlying vanilla oak and a touch of barnyard. On the palate there are cherry and mixed berry flavours with structure from high tannins. Interesting, elegant and sophisticated. A food wine: try it with grilled lamb or goat chops.
Made from vines between 40 to 60 years old, this Vintage Port is black as night (as any good VP should be) and serves up a beguiling nose of blackberry, blueberry, cassis, mint, cocoa and coffee. The palate starts off lean and the expands on the finale with a massive explosion of crème de cassis which carries long. Drink over the next 25 years.
Lively, bright and juicy, fruity and fresh with red berries, soft tannins and a lip-smacking finish. Clean and easy without being simplistic and extremely pleasurable and drinkable. A blend of Castelão, Aragonez, and Touriga Nacional. A killer value. This is your summer BBQ wine.
