I have used Portugal Vineyards for a couple of months now and have placed two orders with them. They take about one and a half weeks to reach the UK from Portugal which I think is reasonable. I drink mostly red wine and the wines I have bought so far are both excellent quality and value. I tend to buy round about the €5 to €10 range but some of the cheaper wines have been the better ones, in my opinion. I estimate that they would cost double that in the UK if you can find them, which you mostly cannot. Customer services have always been very polite and I have not had any problems.

Superb service and fast, secure delivery. About a week from ordering to being delivered direct from Portugal, and at superb prices. Not only that, but wines that are unobtainable here in the UK are easy to find. I have searched for years for my favourite vinho verde without success and now have a nice little stock of it thanks to Portugal Vineyards. Excellent service and I can't recommend it highly enough.

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.

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
