Inspired by the stunning Porta 6, I have gone on to try wines from all the main wine growing areas and from budget to premium price points. For me, Portugal currently represents the best value for money in Europe and Portugal Vineyards have an excellent range of wines at affordable prices supported by great service and very reasonable shipping costs.

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.

I have been using Portugal Vineyards now for over a year and I am always very pleased with the service and range of wines available. If you add on average a pound a bottle for delivery (min of 12 bottles), you will get close to the end costs. Good examples of how good this is are that I have bought wine in a UK off licence for £8.70 that I can buy through Portugal Vineyards for £4.20 inclusive of delivery charge per bottle - what's not to like. I mention them to everyone I meet when we start to talk about red wine...one of my best internet finds ever…

Winemaking:

Colheita is a port from a single harvest, aged in oak casks for, at least, seven years and bottled by demand.The Maynard's Colheitas has been carefully selected and matured in seasoned oak casks to produce a rich mellowness with the finest balance and elegance of old tawnies.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca,Tinta Roriz,Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão

Tasting Notes:
A sweet and fine nose with prune sauce, raisin, hints of exotic wood, wood tar and sweet tobacco. Relatively slender nose, quite intense, lightlysweet, then dry, with some tannin and rasp of exotic wood, good freshness. Long, with prune, raisin, exotic wood, hint of tobacco, slight volatile acidity.

Store and Serve Advices:
The wine should be stored in a fresh, dry and dark place, without temperature variations, and the bottle must remain up-right. As a natural product, the Port Wine is subject to create deposit when ageing. To guarantee the plenitude of its freshness and quality, the wine shall be consumed preferentially with the shortest time in bottle. Serve at a temperature between 12 and 14ºC.

Food Pairing:
Slightly refreshed, expresses all the finesse and sophistication when combined with caramel desserts, dried fruits and spices, like caramel fondant with apple and ginger jelly, tatin tart, burnt cream and Cheeses of minimum intensity. Despite the age, the freshness remains. Extraordinary marriage with a refreshing tangerine parfait. The multiplicity of possible harmonies is amazing, having the consumer the pleasure to go in search of new flavours.
