Reviews

Richard Mayson - 19.5/20.
“Mid-deep amber with a reddish glint and olive-green rim; very expressive, lifted but still tight-knit on the nose, classic dried fruit (figs raisins, Elvas plum), nuts, hickory and exotic, peppery spices, perhaps a bit funky but awe-inspiring complexity; savoury, a touch saline (‘salgadinho’) mouthfilling yet taut as
well, glorious texture, seemingly off-dry (88 g/l residual) sugar yet rich and intense with a wonderfully spicy, slightly saline finish. High in acidity (10.7g/l) but the wine is so well integrated it doesn’t really show. Idiosyncratic undoubtedly but a ‘wow’ of a wine.
