We think

This wine serves as a testament to the potential of the fantastic grape variety Tinta Roriz and it displays perfectly the qualities that make the grape such a key factor in so many Portuguese wines. The colour is a deep burgundy. On taste the wine is exquisitely elegant and wonderfully smooth. As with all the wines that are produced by the Quinta de Lemos there is no compromise on quality, this is an exceptional wine.

Experts say

90 points Mark Squires, erobertparker.com – “This is startlingly good for the vintage and it certainly exceeded my expectations.”

  1. Alistair Ayres

    Good wine. Smooth and velvety. Great with cheese.

  2. Claire Ayres

    Lemos is my new favourite vineyard. Smooth and velvety, although lacking kick.

  3. Stephen Porter

    Smooth quality.

  4. Chevon Porter

    Great, great little wine.

  5. Ed Bratton

    Very special wine. However other bottles this evening have been better value.

  6. James Morris

    Boom!👊!Deep full purple delivers black forrest nose, soft clove and a hint of… strawberry laces?!! Primary palette delivers big spice, blackcurrant, cocoa and then really kicks in with huge juicy tannins, perfect acidity and medium-long finish. This is a cracking big steak wine, showing what Portugal can do. Thanks drinkportuguesewine.co.uk 🤛👍
