We think

This wine is a celebration of the wonderful Portuguese grape variety Jaen. The colour is a deep burgundy and there are delicate oak fragrances to the nose. On taste the wine is exquisitely elegant and warming. As with all the wines produced by the Quinta de Lemos there is no compromise on quality, this is a truly exceptional wine.

Experts say

Praise for 2007 vintage
Gold at the CWSA Best Value 2015.

Bronze at IWC 2014 – “Fresh, juicy red and black fruit. Firm tannins, bright acidity.”

Commended at the Decanter WWA 2014 – “Fascinating nose of blackberries, tobacco and a touch of mint. Palate is fresh, with juicy cherries and plum.”

    Yes, yes and thrice yes! Treat yourself to this. A heady aroma which promises much and then delivers. Berries on the nose and so much currant and red fruit on the palate that it should be one of your five a day. Really smooth drinking. Well balanced with a slightly dry finish.

    This would be five stars at full price. At this sale price you’re almost stealing it. A terrific wine, beautifully made.
