Disappointing

1 stars

Review from tesco.com

Maybe because bottled from bulk in UK. Lost ripe fullness characteristic of traditional Portuguese grape varieties of which I have considerable quaffing experience.

Well worth a try

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

Picked up a couple of bottles instore, at 4.99 it was worth a try simply because most of the Portugese wines are good value even if some of the grapes have a different taste, and whats wrong with that. This is a blend of three grapes, the syrah giving a bit more body to the two native varieties, both bottles had the same consistency, ripe grapes but with that european dry edge that you do not get in many Aus or South American wines, lost a bit of nose towards the end but this at this price is a find and well worth getting a few in at this price which is difficult to better at the moment. Starting to see a few more Portugese wines on the shelves again, good.

perfect dinner wine

Review from tesco.com

Very easy smooth red that's been appreciated by a number of wine snobs, albeit friends. Would happily buy again.

Too thin for my taste

3 stars

Review from tesco.com

I was expecting more from a Portuguese wine, but found this one disappointing. Portuguese wines can be superb, at very low prices, but this wasn't one of them. I note that the label specifies the vintage as 2012, but doesn't specify the region of origin in Portugal. Maybe this should have been a warning ? The Castelao grape usually gives a deep ruby wine but this wine was only average depth of colour, matching the thin taste, but not matching the deep ruby described on the Tesco website. Yes, I was disappointed, but it's still very quaffable. I considered sending it back to Tesco, but decided against, as it's OK as an everyday wine, and at the price I paid, I can't complain. Maybe my expectations were too high ???

A Good Buy

A nice surprise! Very easy to drink before and with food but better to let it breathe for an hour.

Very good value Portuguese red

Review from tesco.com

Yet again I'm amazed by how Portugal can produce such wonderful red wine at very low prices.This is a fruity well balanced red at an incredible price.I now understand why Jancis Robinson a British Master of Wine considered Portuguese red wines on average as the best in the world based on her Tasting 1000 wines vintages 1999 to 2012 from all over the world .
