WINE ENTHUSIAST JUNE/JULY 20221



91 Points -  Andreza Reserva White D.O.C. Douro 2019
With its barrel fermentation and aging, the wine has a fine depth of flavor giving richness to the apple and kiwi flavors. It is a finely balanced wine that just needs a few more months. Drink from 2022.”

91 Points - Monte da Baía Reserva Reg. Península de Setúbal 2018
Produced at the Ermelinda Freitas winery, the wine is a rich blend in which the local Castelão grape features prominently. The wood aging adds spice to the  red fruits and dense texture. The wine is still young and will be better from 2021.” 

91 Points - Pegos Claros Reserva DOC Palmela 2016
Produced from 70-year-old Castelão, the wine has ripe red berry fruits that have been softened by wood aging. Its structure and dry core are now showing signs of maturity, promising great drinkability from late 2021.” EDITORS' CHOICE

90 Points - Desvios DOC Douro 2019
Aged in wood for a year, this wine has a fine mix of vanilla and baked apple flavors. They are lifted by the tight edge of acidity that gives the wine a shine. This feels rich while retaining attractive final freshness. Drink from 2022.”

90 Points - Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas Red DOC Douro 2019
“A field blend of grapes from old vines, this wine, with its dark, almost black color, shows great concentration. Its black fruits and distinct mineral texture are balanced with the wine's fresh edge and dark tannic structure. The wine will develop well and should be ready from 2023.”   BEST BUY

89 Points - Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas Reserva White DOC Douro 2019
“Soft, creamed apple flavors give a wine that shows a lightly tangy character along with a fresh feel from the final touch of citrus. The wood aging adds a spicy aftertaste. Drink from late 2021.”

87 Points -  Azul Portugal Red D.O.C. Douro 2019
“A balanced, ripe wine that has black currant flavors and a layer of young tannins. The fruitiness is vibrant and fresh and will calm down and broaden out. Drink from late 2021. BEST BUY

87 Points -  Claro Red D.O.C. Palmela 2018
“Fruity, light and fresh, the  wine has a crisp character. With plenty of acidity and just the lightest of tannins, the wine is made to drink young.”
