Vinhas Velhas Baga 2015

part of the monthly threesome from wine club.
wines i didn't pick but are supposedly choosed according to my taste.

i let my son cover them in tinfoil then i open and try to guess.

this one is a north Portuguese white blend made from three indigenous varieties :
bical, cercial and sercialinho

12.5% abv

medium + to full body with mostly citrus variety and hinted stone fruit.
it's power and lack of tropics made me guess it's 🇫🇷 sauvignon blanc. but its so sharp i was thinking chablis is another option.
it's so balanced i thought maybe some oak sorted it all out.
i was confused but impressed.

impressive punch all in all.

paired well with medicore Asian take away of sushi, pad thai and plain white rice.

great vfm (around 100 nis)

Caves Albert Duhr (Château Pauqué)

Clos du Paradis Chardonnay Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 | made from Auxxerrois by Abi Duhr. Big, big surprise! This stood out next to a archetypical Chardonnay from Chassagne-Montrachet. Appealing nose with butter, pear and minerals. Great balance. Fine food pairing with potted shrimp. By far the best wine I have had from Luxemburg. Only 500 bottles made in a year, this is certainly a wine to search for. — 21 hours ago

Reserva Magna Carta Vinho Regional Alentejano 2009

My last bottle, and tonight it performs very well. Maybe it’s just sentimental.
Ripe red and blue fruits, with round and mouthwatering acidity. The body is lush and viscous. Long bitter sweet finish.

Caves São João

Reserva Quinta do Poço do Lobo Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Fantastic wine with loads of Cabernet goodness! 25 years old and drinking beautifully right now. Tannins were smooth and mellow, fruit was still fresh, and acid was just right. What a treat! — 15 days ago
