The Eternal Winebook

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.

The wine is made from four typical port wine grapes. It is a dark red wine with aromas of dark berries. It is a tasty wine, with some sweetness, nice acidity, tannin and a little oak in the finish. We had the wine with a pork tenderloin steak, fried red onion and boiled cauliflower, to which it went well. It was also nice on its own.
