This is my personal version of an eternal Book of Portuguese Wines. The book is eternal in the way that it never stays the same. Now and then new pages are added, or the old pages are rewritten, updated or corrected.

Wine with aroma of ripe fruits and cloves. Prominent tannins, long dry aftertaste. Juicy wine, which we enjoyed for oven cooked beef. The wine was very good with the food, and Alicante Bouschet came to its right in this wine.

Wine from the Cartuxa vineyard, which also produces the iconic wine Pêra Manca. Red-purple wine with scents of plums, cherries and red currants. Prominent tannins and a long finnish. Lovely wine, which can be enjoyed on its own, but like today I enjoyed it with Danish meat balls, frikadeller.

The wine is made from two of the most iconic Portuguese red wine grapes. The wine is almost orange in color and has light scents of strawberries and a little tar. Creamy feel in the mouth and a little tannin in the finish. Excellent wine, which can be enjoyed alone. Today we had it Danish open sandwishes.

This wine is not quite as dark as many other Portuguese wines. Intense scents of red berries (black currant), dry wine with some tannin, medium length finish. Today we had this wine for grilled flank steak, to which it was fine. It’s an OK everyday wine which gains by being served chilled (eg 12-14 °C). That’s also how inexpensive wines are served in Portugal.

This wine is produces in Alentejos remote areas near the border with Spain. Very dark wine with scents of dark berries. Light wine with good balance between tannins and acid. The wine was fine with a ham with garlic. As the price suggests, the wine is not great, but a nice wine for your everyday meal.
