Andy's Tasting Notes
Belting value – a rich and warming amalgam of hedgerow berries, plum, liquorice and spice. Nothing hard edged. Ripe and easy drinking yet with real interest.
Price per bottle £8.60
One of Portugal’s largest and most progressive producers with 600 hectares spread across estates in five regions from Douro in the north to Alentejo in the south. Winemaker Francisco Antunes oversees what must be one of the most diverse ranges in Europe – producing some of the country’s most impressive premium reds from estates in Douro, Dao, Bairrada and Alentejo. Arguably, Francisco’s greatest achievements lie between these extremes, a range of mid-priced wines from native varieties, full of character, quite distinctly Portuguese, but at the same time approachable and with fresh, modern fruit.
