Great selection at great prices. Delivery charges very reasonable and quick, even abroad. Would thoroughtly recomment Portugal Vinyards, especially if you want to send wines abroad.

93 pts Robert Parker - Deep ruby colour. Great aromatic complexity and freshness, with quite unique (but typical from the Abandonado vineyard) balsamic and tar flavours, liquorice and black berries. Pure refinement, with delicacy, minerality and an extraordinary purity of fruit. It feels the schist, the surrounding forest, the freshness of the altitude, in a pure expression of the vineyard’s nature. An exercise of pure elegance and class of one of the most iconic vineyards of the Douro and Portugal.
