Shows tropical, floral and stone fruit on the nose with ripe lemon, yellow pear and apricot, together with gravelly mineral and balancing acidity on the palate. Alvarinho, the star grape of the Vinho Verde region, does not show the same verve in the warmer Lisbon region, but nonetheless is an attractive buy.
Purplish. Red and black fruits with well-dosed oak. Nice fruity taste; oak is not too present for a well-balanced mouthfeel. Nice roundness, chewy tannins and a clean finish. A charming wine.
A field blend of old port vines, this rugged red is dense purple in colour with a nose of spicy black berries. It’s a full-bodied, powerful wine — dry and fruity with earthy notes, firmly structured with ripe tannins.
A bargain-priced wine made from a blend of port grapes. Dense purple colour with a nose of spicy black berries; full-bodied, dry and fruity with earthy notes, firm structure with ripe tannins.
Made from a field blend of old vines, this rugged red is dense purple in colour with a nose of spicy black berries; it's a full-bodied, powerful wine — dry and fruity with earthy notes, firmly structured with ripe tannins. Good value. Food match: barbecue ribs; pepper steak.
This blend of 3 Portuguese varieties (Encruzado, Bical and Cerceal) shows an aromatic and slightly perfumed nose of citrus notes, with a mineral touch and a light rustic character. The vivid acidity is offset by the round, fatty texture of the middle palate. It ends on a sharp finish of very good length. Ready to drink, and nice with a ginger-seasoned pork fillet.
Captivates with complex floral, herbal and plum aromas. Impresses with bright acidity, elegant structure, medium-plus body and lithe, mouth-coating tannins, while bursting with red and black fruits. Lingering red liquorice leads to a very dry finish. Spectacular with roast suckling pig — especially the crackling!
