Lacrau Garrafeira 2015


What a weight with combined red fruit and oak in the aromas.

Roll in your mouth, have lots of whole cherries upfront melted in syrup, in harmony with toasted wood. It has an infinite impact cruising at 200 kilometers per hour. Infinite and persistant ending.

Maçanita Touriga Nacional em Rosé 2021


Petrol color. Beautiful. Aromas with appealing red fruit.

Light body with some tension and nerve, slightly chemical and mineral, the fruit passes hidden in the background, you can see it using a microscope. Ends with some weight such as wiped cream floating. It is good for drinking solo or paring with seafood.

Rating: ★★☆☆

Calamus 2020


Made from a blend of lead by Malvasia Toscana, combined with Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Manseng, Riesling and Traminer.

The aroma creates a barrier, is this good? 

In the mouth is pure fireworks. It is a whirlwind of fuit sensations of white pulp mixed with a strand of lime. Feels like a true organic type with all the purity and raw sensations. It's more powerful than some reds.

Rating: ★★

Saint-Véran 2019


Some stone fruit, flowers, honey in the aromas. 

It is fragrant, moisturizing and penetrating. It has micro doses of ripe summer fruit, salt, dried herbs used to season the meat. Beautiful ripe mango, fading to peach blended with citrus. It's magical for summer.

Château de bel-air 2016


Can a wine on sale in a mass supermarket be any good? Let's discover the complexity of wine trading. 

Old cherries and jelly in aroma, cassis, toasted oak.

Super fresh attack, such as a boom box which radiates and slowly vaporizes as you step back. I can find toasted oak pallet, pepper, cherries, it ressembles you are eating cake! There are leaves dust falling, while scrolls exponentially. It's been a while since I drunk anything with a such long finish.

Curvos Alvarinho Branco 2021


Passion fruit in the aroma, kilos and tons of it. Some leaves fallen from a tree planted nearby.

Slightly sparkling. Reveals a passion fruit weight, tastes like a sauvignon blanc and ends up with ananas. At the end of it all Alvarinho variety shows some hints, however, results completely uncharacterized.

Ratting: ★★☆☆

Poeirinho Baga Tinto 2015

Chemical and vegetable aroma.

It has a chemical and burned depth that does not please everyone, however that reminds me the unmanipulated, man's absent organic wines, without filters and tricks. It has a natural sparkling sensation, which gives some strength to the linearity and straight lines that it traces, mostly across cherries and berries.

Ratting: ★★

Ferradosa Vinhas Velhas Branco 2018


Exhales and inhales mineral ore, and a basket of ripe fruit.

It moisturizes the cheeks from the inside. It provides yellow currants and tea leaves, some white pulp fruit and apricot. It is deeply enjoyable.

Ratting: ★★

Mouchão 2014

Dark, deeply black, berries, blackberries.

It's still very strong for a 2014 vintage tasted in 22. It feels like a wild horse. It's blacker than darkest of nights. Ends with some coffee, 100 percent black chocolate and then there's a fruit jam shot. A perfect finish.

Ratting: ★★ 

Quinta de Arcossó Grande Reserva 2018 Branco

The color is saturated yellow. Vegetable background with pear and citrus zest in aromas. 

Dry, citrus in the blend, with orange zest dust to give seasoning. I wish it had a little more strength once it is a wine made with a soul.

Pairs well a grilled fish.
