PORTUGAL

Portuguese wine is the result of traditions introduced to the region by ancient civilizations, such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, and mostly the Romans. Portugal produces a wide variety of different wines with distinctive personality because they have a large array of native varietals.

  • APHROS 2014 LOUREIRO 100%; ORGANIC VINHO VERDE DOC SUB-REION DO LIMA 11.5 ALCOHOL

    Item #: 382618
    Bottle Size: 750ml

    Tasting Notes: Brigth pale wellow citrus hue. A wine with the backbone of granite minerality, were the aroma is dominated by fruits and flowers, including hints of lime and orange with the essential oils of their skins. the mouth attack has volume and a vibrant acidity, enhancing length and persistence.

    Gastronomic suggestions: Accompanies fish, grilled or baked, cod with cream, shellfish, sushi, salads and fruits.

    Aphros Wine: Water flows, wind blows, birds fly, plants grow. In every human being there is the inner call to be one with nature, with the natural truth of one’s being. There is also an inborn desire to create something unique where our joy may be passed on to others.

    Aphros Wine is a project where these aspirations have come together in my life, intertwining gifts of destiny.: an ancient family Quinta set in a beautiful terroir, a lifelong interest in Steiner and biodynamics, and a love for arts and crafts have naturally combined to shape the style of the winery.

    The main players however, are the gifts of Nature we work with – indigenous grapes of outstanding originality - Loureiro and Vinhão – and an Atlantic, granitic Terroir, that offers unparalled freshness and levity. Resulting of natural agricultural and cellar practices, our artisanal wines are pure, deep expressions of Vinho Verde terroir, largely contributing to a change of paradigm in its image and perception worldwide.

    Almaroja vines average 80 years old and are farms organically (and nearly biodynamically), with yields as low as 10 hl / ha.
    Pirita is named for the mineral pyrite, that is found throughout the vineyard soils. Otherwise known as fool's gold.

    Said Jancis Robinson, about the Almaroja Pirita Tinto Crianza: "I enjoyed this wine over several evenings...I can strongly recommend it to those looking for a versatile red that offers a whole range of new flavours and textures. It looks pretty smart too."

    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. 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."

    The 2013 Post Scriptum de Chryseia is principally a Touriga Nacional / Touriga Franca blend. Not overly concentrated, it does have beautiful, lifted fruit and an enticing fresh feel to it. In its own subtle way, this is focused and very appealing and a complete charmer. Perfumed and almost Margaux-like! Bone dry and rather refined.

  • DOMINGUES CUARTA GENERACION 2012 "CLASSICO" CANARY ISLANDS

    Item #: 378613
    Bottle Size: 750ml

    "The Dominguez Clasico, the bodega's flagship wine, is a blend of very old, ungrafted, pre-phylloxera Listan Negro, Negramoll, Tintilla and Listan Blanco (Palomino). Phylloxera never 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 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.

  • MARIO S.A. NUNO 2010 GARRAFEIRA, QUINTA DOS BAGEIRAS "BAIRRADA" 90+ YEAR OLD BAGA VINES.

    WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "This 2010 Garrafeira Quinta dos Bageiras is another gorgeous Garrafeira from Bageiras, produced only in what owner Mário Sérgio Alves Nuno believes are the best years. Sourced from very old vines (90+ years, said Mario), it was aged for 18 months in used 3000-liter Portuguese tonels. It has big everything: strong concentration of flavor, intensity on the finish, classic Baga nuances and plenty of acidity. This lets it all hang out, but it also works it out rather well. This wine is not for the shy; it is quite a mouthful. It could use a few more years in the cellar, despite its late release (it sort of fits this month's theme on older wines), but it can be approached if you must. This, for most producers, wasn't a great vintage, but you could make good wine in it and Bageiras sure did. At the price point, this is a super value. Late released, it should be in the marketplace now."

    The Bairrada region is located in northern Portugal. It’s a difficult place to grow grapes, and it’s gone through some hard times. But when it gets it right, it makes some of Portugal’s most impressive, ageworthy red wines, based on the Baga grape. Màrio Sérgio Alves Nuno is the winemaker and owner of Bágeiras, which he set up in 1990. Vineyard area is 24 ha (large for the region), spilt between red and white varieties. These wines are serious, and remind a bit of the great Italian reds from Sangiovese and Nebbiolo with their structure and acidity.

    WINE ENTHUSIAST 95 POINTS - "This markes the 17th vintage of this wine, a joint venture between the Symington family and Bordeaux consultant Bruno 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."

    WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS-Incredibly deep in color, violet, dark red and purple, has a tremendous concentration of mature dark red fruit aromas, with a very typical predominance and blackberries, black cherries and plums. The aging in cask is concentrating the original mature tannins of the wine and has smoothened its power, originating very powerful, though very elegant wines with great balance and finesse and a very long and fruity finish.

    Single vineyard with an average age of 80 years. Aged in 100% French oal for 21 months. Primary varietals are Rufete Turiga, Tinta Amarilla, Turiga Franca and Turiga Nacional (very 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."
