WINE ENTHUSIAST BEST OF YEAR 2017 ISSUE 


In the last issue of 2017, our wines have been rated and reviewed by Roger Voss and received the following scores:

92 Points - Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas Reserva Especial DOC Douro 2015
“Produced from a field blend of old vines (Vinhas Velhas), this rich wine is powerfully structured. It has dark tannins and great concentration, balancing rich plum flavors and acidity with firm structure. This is a wine for serious aging, don't drink before 2020.”  CELLAR SELECTION

91 Points - Insurgente DOC Dão 2015
“Rich, ripe and full of fruit, this blend of Touriga Nacional and Alfrocheiro is generous and structured. It has dark tannins and concentrated black fruits (rich with wood aging), spice and fine acidity. Drink this full-bodied wine from 2018.”  EDITORS' CHOICE

90 Points - Andreza Grande Reserva White DOC Douro 2014
“This wood-aged wine is now mature. Along with spice and toast, it also has an oxidative character that gives softness and warmth. Its rich flavors are full bodied, bringing out citrus and intense acidity. The wine is ready to drink.” 

89 Points - Águia Moura em Vinhas Velhas Reserva White DOC Douro 2016
“This crisp, clean and ripe wine is finely balanced. The toastiness from wood aging in new barrels is balanced with the rich citrus and sliced apple and a tight, mineral character. This is a full-bodied wine needing a few more months to age. Drink from 2018.” 

89 Points - Nostalgia Alvarinho Vinho Verde DOC 2016
“From the northern part of Vinho Verde, this wine is produced from old vines that have been trained on traditional high trellises. It is full of citrus, ripe lemon and lime along with a crisp mineral texture. Its acidity is both tense and refreshing, allowing the wine a chance to age. Drink from 2018.” 

88 Points - Capitão Rayeo Reserva Regional Alentejano 2015
“Aged for six months in wood, this juicy wine with its red-berry fruits is stylish and full bodied. It has tannins that act as a support to the bold fruits and firm structure. That suggests the wine, although ready to drink now, will also age. Drink now or keep until 2018.” 

88 Points - Capitão Rayeo Regional Alentejano 2016
“The wine has blackberry fruits that give attractive acidity and add to the light structure. It is fruity, juicy and ready to drink.” BEST BUY

Cheers!
