Winemaker's Notes - "Vinho Verde, the most popular white wine from Portugal, is a deliciously refreshing, light wine. "Verde", meaning "Green" refers to the hints of lime color. Read More...
It is an ideal warm weather wine, excellent for lunch and picnics, or an evening apertif. It makes a brilliant pairing with any fish, shellfish and poultry."

Pratts (Cos Estournel former owner). Based entirely on fruit from Quintas de Roriz and Perdiz, this smooth structured wine has many of the characteristics of Bordeaux with its new wood and elegant texture."

WINE ADVOCATE - "The 2012 Post Scriptum de Chryseia is principally a Touriga Nacional / Touriga Franca blend, with tiny quantities of other grapes, aged for 13 months 400-liter French oak. It is a fresh and elegant PS this year. Not overly concentrated, it does have beautiful, lifted fruit and an enticing fresh feel to it. In its own subtle way, this focused and very appealing PS should be a complete charmer. If it evolves well, it may yet be entitled to an uptick, but it won't disappoint at its typically nice price."

special old vines).
The 2012 “CV” (the initials stand for “Curriculum Vitae”) (Quinta Vale D. Maria) is another blockbuster, full in the mouth, round, with a gorgeous, lingering finish. In its youth, it has a touch of oak and licorice noticeable. Its attack is subtle at first, and then it increases in intensity to the point where it is rather focused and penetrating. It is structured and remarkably flavorful, with lovely red berry notes on the finish. It adds another layer or so of fruit to the regular “tinto.” There were approximately 416 cases made.

affected the Canaries, and the island is home to countless gnarled, twisted, extremely old vines. All vines on the island are ungifted. Different parcels from different plots of land are vinified separately, though the fermentations of the Listan Negro and Negramoll include the Listan Blanco. Perhaps counterintuitively (and perhaps oversimplified a bit for space), fermentation of red grapes with white aids in color extraction, enhancing tannin structure, and creating more surface area for the binding of a greater amount of aromatic compounds. The wine is blended after alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation happens on the lees, during 4 month aging in American and Central European oak barrels."- Importer's Notes

Eladio wanted to make red wine, and he knew Rias Baixas was not the place for it, so he bought an estate with vineyards near his holiday home in the Alentejo and made a red wine which Read More...
is again about as far from an “industrial” wine as you can get. Four YEARS in new barrels, 3 years in stainless after that, at least six months in the bottle, no clarification, no fining etc. , designed to be drunk on release but will age effortlessly…The methods are somewhat evocative of López de Heredia in the sense that the wine is released when deemed ready to drink, while remaining capable of much longer aging. But the warmer Portuguese climate makes for a broader shouldered vein, not at all overripe but concentrated, minerally, and sublime.

WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS - "Powerful, rich and refined, with a lithe mouthfeel and flavors of boysenberry, sandalwood, macerated cherry and damson plum. Read More...
Very minerally as well, featuring loads of spicy notes on the well-structured, lingering finish. Elegant. Drink now through 2022."

Deep violet in color. Expressive aromas of vibrant berry fruits combined with subtle hints of fresh spices. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and concentrated with voluptuous ripe fruit along with notions of cocoa. With time in the glass, the wine becomes more complex and darker fruits, including blueberries emerge. Powerful, focused and intense with velvety tannins which make the wine accessible now, but also capable of aging. The finish is very long, showing excellent concentration and perfect balance. Simply Delicious.

Quinta do Crasto has crafted another winner! We recently featured the Quinta do Crasto Superior and it was a huge hit with our customers. Many tried a bottle and returned to buy more once they tasted the quality. Now is a great time to explore a bit more as we just received the Quinta do Crasto Reserva. It is also made with native Portuguese grapes, but the Reserva is sourced from Old Vines. As many of our customers know, old vines have lower yields resulting in more mouth-filling concentration. This fantastic red blend is rich yet lively and offers more depth and complexity than the Superior. As you may recall, Portuguese wines took 3 of the top 4 spots on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List last year. This Quinta do Crasto Reserva received a 94 Point rating from Wine Spectator! These wines continue to be a steal and remain one of the great undiscovered secrets and bargains of the world.

Situated on the right bank of the Douro River, between the towns of Régua and Pinhão, Quinta do Crasto has a privileged location in the Demarcated Region of the Douro. Quinta do Crasto has belonged to the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for over a century. Their passion for wine making has contributed to Quinta do Crasto´s growing national and international reputation.
