94 Points - Quinta do Bronze DOC Douro 2015
“This is the first release from a little-known quinta in a privileged position on the Pinhão river. The wine is very fine, impressively rich and full of dark tannins and further potential. The black fruits and acidity bring out the structure and will help the aging. Drink from 2022.” CELLAR SELECTION

92 Points - Primo DOC Palmela 2015
“This limited production wine, in its heavy bottle, is a fine example of Castelão when it is well selected. The wine comes from old vines, is wood aged and still has plenty of potential. Drink this concentrated wine from 2021.”  

90 Points - Andreza Códega do Larinho DOC Douro 2018
“One of the lesser white grapes of the Douro, Códega do Larinho is enjoying a revival because of its acidity. The wine is initially soft and then reveals its crisp apple and white fruit flavors, delicious to drink now.” EDITORS' CHOICE

89 Points - Maria Bonita Barrica Loureiro Vinho Verde DOC 2017
“Fermented and aged in used barrels, the wine has filled out and gained spice as well as rich tropical flavors. Its acidity is well integrated into the smooth texture and ripe fruitiness. Drink now.”

89 Points - Andreza Touriga Nacional/Touriga Franca DOC Douro 2016
“This ripe blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca is packed with black fruits. Its balance and stylish character is enhanced by the perfumed acidity and by the spice from 12 months of wood aging. Drink from 2020.”

88 Points - Pegos Claros Blanc de Noirs DOC Palmela 2018
“A white wine made from the red Castelão grape, this is ripe and softly textured, with fresh flavors from lemon zest and ripe green plums. The wine is ready to drink.” 

88 Points - Nostalgia Bonita Barrica Alvarinho Vinho Verde DOC 2017
“This small production, wood-aged wine is ripe while missing out on some of the fruitiness of Alvarinho. What it does have is richness and a sense of maturity that gives a whole new take on the Monção and Melgaço region of northern Vinho Verde. Drink the wine now.”

87 Points - Pegos Claros Rose Palmela 2018
“Light and fruity, this is a fresh wine. It has touches of caramel, typical of the Castelão grape, which adds some richness to the crisp texture. The aftertaste is full of attractive acidity.”
