Wine Enthusiast October 2018


90 Points - Azul Portugal DOC Dão 2015
The wood aging of a portion of this wine has given it a dimension of richness, toast and mint, as well as fine fruits. It is structured and still young. Bold and full, with a strong mineral texture, the wine needs another few months. Drink from 2019.”  BEST BUY

90 Points - Secretum DOC Douro 2016
Pure Arinto grown in the strongly mineral soil of the Douro has produced a richly structured, as well as richly fruity, wine. It has plenty of white and citrus fruit as well as a touch of spice from the wood aging. Drink the wine now.”  

89 Points - Maria Papoila Escolha Vinho Verde DOC 2017
This is a bone-dry and rich wine, with a warm, rounded texture that is cut by the intense acidity of the cool climate Vinho Verde region. It is perfumed, flavored with lime, green apples and juicy apricots. Drink this wine now.” BEST BUY

88 Points - Azul Portugal DOC Do Tejo 2016
This is a soft wine, ripe and with plenty of fruitiness. It comes from a blend of southern Portuguese varieties that give a sense of warmth and richness to the wine. The light structure and acidity hold this fruity wine together. Drink now.

88 Points - Andreza Códega do Larinho DOC Douro 2017
This fruity crisp wine comes from one of the lesser known Douro white grapes. It has attractive apple flavors with a delicious tangy texture. Acidity and a crisp aftertaste finish the wine in a refreshing way.” 

88 Points - Andreza Reserva Red DOC Douro 2015
High-altitude vines give this wine its elegant texture as well the balanced red fruits. It is a structured wine that is still a little young with some firm tannins as well as the forward fruitiness. Drink from 2019.” 

87 Points - Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas White DOC Douro 2017
This fruity wine has been made from a field blend of old vines. It is also ripe, full of young fruit, acidity and a crisp apple character. Drink this attractive wine now.” 

87 Points - Pegos Claros Blanc de Noirs DOC Palmela 2017
The interesting conceit of making a white wine from the red Castelão pays off in this fruity crisp wine. It has a light texture although its main thrust is all about the bright fruit and acidity. Drink the wine now.”
