Portugal Fine Wine
A wine in only its third vintage, majority viosinho for its affinity with the older oak barrels used here, with the addition of gouveio for freshness and a touch of tropical fruit.
From an old property restored by winemaking giant Sogrape Vinhos and made from the traditional white grape arinto, whose life-affirming acidity carries the delicate green-apple and white floral perfume and flavour long on the palate.
Dense and velvety, old-vine red from one of the great red wine estates in the Douro. Rich, heady, dark fruit is complemented by the present but well-managed fine tannins. The Quinta do Crasto has belonged to the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for over a century, but it dates back much further: the word ‘crasto’ comes from the Latin ‘castrum’, meaning fort, and there are records of this estate as early as 1615.
Made by Rui Madeira and certified organic, this fine red is beautifully fragrant. with wonderful freshness and energy for all its concentration. Rui worked all over the world and brought his vast store of knowledge and experience back to Portugal, where his passion for the Douro and its wines is evident.
A beautifully perfumed blend of local tinta roriz (tempranillo) and jaen (mencía) from cool, high-altitude vineyards in north-eastern Portugal, close to the border with Spain, with well-judged use of oak.
Altitude is key to the freshness in this verdelho-viosinho blend from the hot, dry Douro Superior. Barrel-fermented and matured in French oak for six months, this has a lovely creamy texture supported by a fine seam of acidity which cleanses the palate.
