Excellent communication from start to finish. The website is easy to navigate with very good recommendations and there is a wine to suit every taste and budget. If there is a wine out of stock you will be told and offered a replacement so you order will not be held up. The tracking system is a fantastic tool to keep an eye on where you reach order is. I have placed many orders with Portugal Vineyards and I look forward to enjoying many more. Keep up the great work.

90 pts Wine Spectator - Medium tawny with ruby at core. There's quite a rich barley sugar and honey character to this wine, with a promise of sweetness and some toffee and orange nuances. On the palate it is medium bodied, with plenty of sweetness. There are notes of toffee and spices, and plenty of brown sugar and hints of chocolate and fudge. On the palate that sweetness persists, with a big pithy core of grapefruit flavour and acidity cutting through the middle. This has plenty of tart, orange peel and grapefruit bite, and has good length.
