Of the 2012 vintage, Olly Smith said: “A hearty red and one that’s good value. It’s plump with fruit without being over-heavy.”
Hamish Anderson - Daily Telegraph Magazine 12/04/2014
Of the 2012 vintage, Hamish Anderson said: “You can frequently find this on offer, which then pushes it into the bargain category. A blend of Syrah and the southern Portuguese stalwart Castelao, it is full of juicy, brambly fruit. Its burly, rustic nature makes it ideally placed to take on a flavourful shoulder of lamb cooked with garlic and rosemary.”
Portugal has a long history of wine growing. This region’s vine area is made up of traditional and the most famous international grape varieties.
