  • Here’s a smooth and juicy wine that has great black fruit aromas and flavours. It has good balance between the dry tannins and a firm structure typical of Dão, with a classy finish. Drink from 2015.

     

    A Gentle giant! Dense, brooding and serious but with a soft and seductive delivery. Drink whilst listening to Marvin Gaye.” – Patrick Goudge, Private Client Sales

Press ReviewPress

My final pick for this month is the IWC silver medal winning Casa da Passarella A Descoberta Tinto, a gem of a bargain from Portugal. I have long been a fan and champion of Portuguese red wines, which always perform well in wine competitions due to their rich, spicy charms, but they are still underrated by many red wine drinkers. Why? Maybe because they are just not well known enough, and let’s face it, many of the labels are both complicated and confusing, so they have less recognition than wines like Rioja or Barolo. If you haven’t made the move to Portuguese reds, but love big , bold, rich, yet soft reds, this award-winner is the way to start the journey. Produced from the same grapes that are used for Port, it’s a dense, brooding delight, packed with dark chocolate, dried fig, and sweet blackberry fruit, overlaid with hints of black pepper, cedar and mulled wine spices. Intense, and with a rich core of flavour, the tannins are soft, and the wine is seductive. Perfect for all manner of barbecued foods ( including spicy ones), it’s also a winner with slow-braised casseroles, and Sunday roast beef.
