Reviews and Ratings

Serge rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:

Very good, buy again.
Afrocheiro, the main grape here, is a lesser-known variety unique to the Iberian Peninsula. It is prized particularly for the intense colour it can bring to a blend. Syrah and Petit Verdot make up the rest of this wine. Deeply coloured with aromas of sour cherry, date squares, ripe berries and vanilla. Dry, juicy and jammy, this intense wine is quite full bodied with a lovely fruity/oaky finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
