Product Details

Tasting Notes

A plump, ripe Portuguese red made from a blend of the native Castelão grape along with some Shiraz.

The ruby red colour gives you indication of what juicy joy lies in the glass.

Packed with red berries and plum fruit, with a hint of spice.

Loves tomato-based pasta dishes, or sausages.

Storage Instructions

To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

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.”

Olly Smith - Event Magazine, Mail on Sunday 09/02/2014

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.”

Hamish Anderson - Daily Telegraph Magazine 12/04/2014
