Could not find these wines in UK but found them with Portugal Vineyards so made a first order with company - what an excellent service received within 4 days of ordering - packed well and delighted with purchase and price of wine - will certainly be using Portugal Vineyards again!

91 pts Tom Cannavan - Medium tawny/gold colour. Seems a bit flabby and displaying too much flat oxidation at first, and a teacake fruitiness only emerges reluctantly. The palate has a biscuity richness and quite a thick texture, with plenty of sweetness. There's a lot of warmth and a Demerara sugar depth and toffeed sweetness here, but the grapefruity acidity is tangy and precise into the finish.

86 points - Cossart Gordon Vintage Verdelho 1975

The 1975 Verdelho is missing a little clarity on the nose, with touches of hot buttered toast, spice and dried orange peel. It appears rustic at the moment. The palate is better with a rounded, viscous entry that is matched by piercing acidity. It is not a particularly complicated Verdelho, but it is harmonious, light on its feet and focused with a light honeyed, resinous finish that exhibits a little distracting volatility.
