"Portuguese wine is made from a dazzling array of high-quality vine varieties that are, for the moment anyway, rarely found elsewhere." Jancis Robinson
Portugal is the birth place of 2 of the world's most famous wine styles - Port and Madeira. It is home to one of the world's oldest demarcated wine regions - the Douro in 1756. With the combination of over 30 DOC regions in an area smaller than Victoria, more than 300 varieties in current usage and the amazing variation in altitude, soil types and weather the potential of Portugal is almost limitless.
Dona Paterna Alvarinho 2015, the oldest Alvarinho vines in the region. Granite soils, master viticulturist. Consistently named top Alvarinho. Esporao Reserva branco 2015 2015 was a top year for whites and this perennial award wine really shines. Twice Winemaker of the Year and listed in Wine and Spirits Magazines Top 100 Wineries of the World. Casal Santa Maria Malvasia 2014 2014 was a little warmer than the brilliant 2015 vintage but that suits this wine perfectly. Grown, literally on the edge of the continent it shows classic cool coastal charcteristics with fresh acidity and a hint of sea spray. 25% saw some old barrels to add some texture and body. Tiny production. Quinta dos Murcas Reserva 2010 From one of the oldest demarcated wine regions in the world. This is what Douro is all about - Vinhas Velhas (Old Vine Field Blend). Over 30 different varieties all mixed up in the one vineyard, all picked together, co-fermented in the traditional open lagares after 4 hours of foot treading on the first day after crushing. Quinta das Camelias TN 2012 Small producer making incredible value wines. 7 different clones of Touriga Nacional (Portuguese most famous red variety) each providing a different character. Cool climate and heavy granite soils combine to produce a wine with wonderful mineralality and fine-grained tannins. Pretty, serious, balanced and structured all in one.
