Buy great Portuguese wines at sensible prices. Even with the shipping charges of €14 per case of 12 bottles it still works out much cheaper than UK supermarkets and wine merchants.For example, Porto 6 fashionable Lison red is £7-99 in majestic (buying 6 mixed bottles or £8-99 for a single bottle) and from Portugalvineyards around £4-50p shipped.The website is well laid out and user-friendly.In around 2 years of buying a case of 12 wines every other month, I have only had two corked bottles and they were swiftly refunded as a credit without any hassle.The loyalty scheme gives electronic credit vouchers for redemption on future purchases.A huge range of Douro and other regional wines that you simply won't find in the UK.

Winemaking:
After delivery of the grapes intended for the production of Grão Vasco Reserva, they are first destemmed and then gently crushed, before being conveyed by gravity to stainless steel fermentation vats. Fermentation lasted for around 10 days, during which the must was subjected to a number of pumping overs in order to gently bring out the phenolic compounds in the skins. The wine was then removed to ageing vats, where alcoholic fermentation took place. Grão Vasco Reserva do Museu 1996 matured for 9 months in used French oak barrels, after malolactic fermentation.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Alfrocheiro, Jaen, Tinta Pinheira

Tasting Notes:
The age of Grão Vasco Reserva do Museu 1996 is revealed in the orange colour of the wine and the tertiary aromas present. The aroma also reveals some fruit, hints of the forest, with pine needles, eucalyptus and a good plant component that gives freshness to the bouquet. It is a wine that has managed to keep its freshness alive over time and become more complex and elegant. Wines like this don’t let us forget that Dão is a region where time is essential and it plays a key role in the excellence of the older wines.

Store and Serve Advices:
The bottle should be kept horizontally in a dry and cool place, sheltered from light. Serve between 15ºC-17ºC.

Food Pairing:
It is a very gastronomic wine that accompanies both meat and fish, such as roasted kid, a loaf of grilled veal or even a fish stew.
