Dense purple-black in colour with a spicy nose of brambleberries and blackcurrants. Full-bodied with sweet, dark chocolate and black-fruit flavours. Firmly structured and still tight. Will reward patient cellaring for 20 years but enjoyable for senior citizens in 5 years.
This winery’s red all-natural wine made using amphorae, is a blend of 4 grapes: Aragonez (Tempranillo), Trincadera and 2 very rare indigenous varieties (Moreto and Tinta Grossa). Aged on the skins for 6 months, it is a little shy on the nose, but delivers clean red cherry and plum fruit in a medium-weight package with rounded tannins and good overall balance.
Youthful purple in the glass, showing lightly perfumed fleshy dark fruit with a touch of fine spice. Full-flavoured and rounded on the palate with elegant berry and dark cherry character, approachable tannins and not overly aggressive acidity. A good example of Touriga Nacional quality as a single grape variety.
Scents of cherry with a whiff of herb, vanilla and a pinch of spice introduce lightly sweet dark fruit with rounded structure, grippy but approachable tannins and a well-balanced, harmonious finish.
Dense purple in colour, it has a spicy nose of blackberries and pencil lead. Medium-bodied and dry, it’s well-balanced and firmly structured with a lovely, velvety mouth feel. A house wine contender.
Offers gently perfumed fresh fruity expression with sweet, ripe candied cherry flavours in an easy-drinking, uncomplicated style.
Entirely organic, this is a natural wine, made using clay amphorae in the ancient way, together with wild yeasts and without filtration. Blend of three little-known indigenous varieties. Unlike some “natural wines” I have tasted, this one is very clean with yellow-fruit flavours that are hard to pin down but are, nonetheless, pleasant and persist, along with lightly bitter notes through the finish. Not for everyone, but worth a try.
