Great value for some super wines that you don't get in UK supermarkets. Delivery was reasonable and doesn't take too long, with items arriving in good condition. The Porta 6 is a versatile red that's great with red meat or pasta and the Meia Encosta Dao i

16 pts Revista de Vinhos - Clear and bright with a young, greenish tone. An intense aroma with ripe citrine notes; limes and orange blossom to the fore. Refreshing on the palate with aromatic citrine notes and a firm, but very well-integrated, acidity. This wine has a balanced and crisp finish.

Winemaking:
Vinification took place at the Quinta de Azevedo winery. On arrival, the grapes were carefully treated and gently destemmed, in order to fully preserve their character. The channelling of the must is done using temperature controls and protected from oxidation by the use of inert gases. Soft crushing follows in a pneumatic press with some pre-fermentative maceration. Alcoholic fermentation took place at temperatures between 16ºC-18ºC, using selected yeasts, particularly the native yeast QA23. This wine matured in stainless steel tanks with "battonage", stirring of the lees, for 3 months.

Grape Varieties:
Loureiro, Alvarinho

Tasting Notes:
Clear and bright with a young, greenish tone. An intense aroma with ripe citrine notes; limes and orange blossom to the fore. Refreshing on the palate with aromatic citrine notes and a firm, but very well-integrated, acidity. This wine has a balanced and crisp finish.

Store and Serve Advices:
Store horizontally. The fresh, fruity profile of this wine means that it is ready to be consumed immediately. That being said, this wine will age positively for at least 3 years.

Food Pairing:
An ideal aperitif, this wine pairs wonderfully with fish dishes, fresh salads and seafood. Its fresh character also makes it a perfect wine for outdoor refreshment.
