Maria Mora Reserva 2014

Amy & Ross have been trying to convince me of the merits of Portuguese Wine and proffered this – sourced from their local wine shop.

Sweet black fruit with a dry silky finish. Nice tannin / structure, well made.

Morgadio de Mora, Reserva, 2014, Alentejano

Another refined number from Alentejano in the South of Portugal.

Very similar to the Maria de Mora, this has a drier finish and slightly more austere fruit. Needs food.

Vallado Quadrifolia 2014 Duoro

We took a chance on this Portugeuse Four Leafed Clover to compliment the Steak and the Venison Sausage mains in Coppinger Row and it paid off.

Soft rounded red with a blueberry / raspberry nose.

A belated Birthday treat courtesy of John.​ Good meal, great company.​

Turns out that this is an ​’entry level
​’ wine from Quinta do Vallado in the Duoro Valley. Merits further research. quintadovallado.com

Azahar Vinho Verde 2011 DOC

20130813-230102.jpg
A ‘choice / escolha’ presentation from Gota Wines, a noble undertaking to present the best of Portugese Wines.

A blend of Loureiro, Pedernã, Tresadura and Azal grapes from granite soil of the Vinho Verde.

Bright golden colour, dry tang of citrus fruit. Quite full bodied for a Vinho Verde. Will improve as a blend in future years I suspect. Tastes like Summer.

From Tesco.
