Amy & Ross have been trying to convince me of the merits of Portuguese Wine and proffered this – sourced from their local wine shop.
Another refined number from Alentejano in the South of Portugal.
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
Portugese wines are often overlooked and we rarely seek them out.
This number was a Christmas gift and packed a big flavourful taste of summer fruits.
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.
