Praise for 2007 Vintage
Gold Medal at Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2014
Silver at IWC 2015 – “Medium bright garnet colour, fresh, plummy, bright fruit notes. On the palate balanced with sweet vanilla and mocha finish.”
Bronze medal CWSA Best Value 2015
Commended at Decanter WWA 2014 – “Super ripe, concentrated but very young. Needs time to mellow, but has good potential.”
Included in 50 Great Portuguese Wines 2010 – “Graphite and mineral character, with tight, glossy black fruit and those little floral highlights. The palate has a lovely freshness, with juicy cherry and plum skin bite to the acidity. This is deliciously poised between juicy fruit sweetness and fleshy approachability, and that more brooding, tightly wound muscular concentration.” Tom Cannavan
