Filipa Pato

Post Quercus Branco 2015

White flower, lemon balm, fresh hay, toasted seeds, jasmine and mineral on the palate. Wicked good. — a day ago

Rita Ferriera

Conceito Branco White Blend 2017

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

I feel like you're supposed to make your own label for that bottle, all that white space.

@Severn Goodwin the white space is where you write your initials so you know which bottle is yours

Quinta do Boição

Special Selection Old Vineyards Vinho Regional Estremadura Touriga Nacional 2008

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.

P (Portugal) Red Blend

This is a great Orin Swift red blend from Portugal. Spicy and full bodied with medium acidity.

Showing black fruits with earth, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Good right out of the bottle and good for parties.

Alcohol is very integrated although very high, so watch out.

Villa Nova

Portugal Avesso 2016

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
