  • Cerejeiras Portuguese Red

    This is a delightfully fresh, fruity, unoaked red from the Lisbon Region. A blend of Castelão (60%), Aragonez (30%) and Touriga Nacional (10%)….classic, eh?! Well, unknown they may be, but the resultant juicy, fruity, soft and fleshy red is comfort wine par excellence.

  • Carneiro Estate “Luz” Vinho Verde

    A lovely new wine just arrived in. Christiana only makes two wines – there’s specialisation for you. Both are Vinho Verde and this is the classic one. Made from a blend of Azal and Loureiro grapes ( who ever heard of those?) this is light and refreshing. Fruity with a hint of bitterness. A still wine but with a zing of natural spritz which characterizes a good Vinho Verde. This spritz does dissipate after a while, though. Great summer wine.

  • Carneiro Estate “Tordo” Alvarinho

    The second of our new wines just arrived in from Christiana at Carneiro Estate. This is 100% Alvarinho but still classified as Vinho Verde. It is fuller and rounder than the classic blend VV, but that’s Alvarinho for you! Bags of easy fruit and a great summery wine to enjoy on its own or with light foods.

  • Casabel Portuguese Red

    Lovely soft red with vibrant cherry-like fruit. A great example of  just how much fun Portuguese wines can be.

    This is a soft, yet well-structured, unoaked red from the Lisbon Region. If the Cerejeiras is defined by easy fruit, this has a bit more oomph, so will take richer food. It has lovely clean fruit character.

  • Peninsula de Lisboa Portuguese Red

    Step-by-step we increase the intensity and complexity from the Lisbon Region. This time a blend of Castelão (50%) and Aragonez (50%) which is aged for six months in oak barrels. There’s a beautiful clean structure about this wine (maybe the absence of the rustic Touriga?). Harmonious and spicy. Yum.

  • Quinta de San Francisco Portuguese Red

    Single Estate red from the Obidos region. Castelão (60%), Aragonez (20%),Touriga Nacional (20%) are aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels. This was my pick of the family’s three estate wines. Maybe it’s the Touriga Nacional which gives it an almost violet fruit over and above the soft, oakiness. It has won Gold at four separate competitions this year.

  • Sanguinhal Estate Touriga Nacional Portuguese Red

    Single Estate red from 100% Touriga Nacional grapes. I did taste the various blends at this quality level, but my personal taste was for this pure indigenous varietal which reeks of Portugal. Lovely deep, rich colour. An almost perfumed nose and a soft, smooth palate. Jolly nice!
