Inspired by the stunning Porta 6, I have gone on to try wines from all the main wine growing areas and from budget to premium price points. For me, Portugal currently represents the best value for money in Europe and Portugal Vineyards have an excellent range of wines at affordable prices supported by great service and very reasonable shipping costs.

Couldn't wait to receive my order! Took a bit longer to dispatch the order than I was expecting though.

Excellent choice of wines at very good value prices. Delivery takes around 1 week from order but is consistently reliable. You cannot buy wines of this quality at the price I The uk. Highly recommend Portugal Vineyards

89 pts Robert Parker - Intense red berry fruit aromas, with notes of vanilla and licorice. A solid palate with a core of focused raspberry and cherry fruit, finishing with good acidity.

Winemaking:
In 1991, we were the first ones to plant Syrah in the Alentejo, choosing rootstock from southern Rhone clones. Today, our range consists of 3 different 100% Syrah varietals. Starting with the entry level is our popular ‘Cortes de Cima Syrah’, which is bottled every vintage. Next, we move up a notch both in concentration and quality, to the mid-level range – ‘Homenagem a Hans Christian Andersen’, bottled in most vintages. We culminate at the top, with our reserve quality labeling, the iconic ‘Incógnito’, only bottled in exceptional years. Made exclusively from selected Syrah grapes hand picked at optimum maturity from chosen sites in our own vineyards. Fermented without stems under temperature control, frequent delestage, followed by extended skin maceration to enhance varietal fruit characters, and to provide tannin structure and balance. Aged for 8 months in French and American oak barrels.
