White flower, lemon balm, fresh hay, toasted seeds, jasmine and mineral on the palate. Wicked good. — a day ago
This is exceptional and wise beyond years for a young winemaker like Rita Ferreira. A medley of foreign grapes, it has my favorite parts of white Burgundy. Restrained oak with lively fresh acid and citrus fruits that slip like nothing into orchard fruits of peaches and cherries. How can some so uniform come from so many parts? — 15 days ago
A rich and savory blend of Touriga Nacional and Syrah, it offers a deep and complex nose of currants, plum, black pepper, black tea, dried mushrooms, saddle wood, and dark chocolate. Bright acidity brings energy to a full body.
Could not be more happy to pick out this gem at a great restaurant in Macau, probably one of the most under-the-radar (certainly not underrated as this tiny peninsula boasts 3 Michelin 3-star restaurant) food destination. — 4 days ago

Vinhas Velhas - 40+ indigenous varietals inter planted. 20.5% Fig, prune, almond paste, raisin, sticky pumpkin pudding, pecan pie. Elevated acidity, full body. Pronounced intensity and prolonged finish. — 14 days ago
Smells of pears. Citrus fruit with low acidity but not flabby. This is the best wine with spicy food. Usually wine is astringent and bitter after eating spicy food but this wine maintains its flavors and even tastes a touch of creaminess. — 17 days ago
