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.

Successful combination of the French Merlot and the Portuguese national grape, Touriga Nacional. Red-golden wine with intense scents of red berries and prunes. Pleasant wine with balanced tannin and acidity and medium finish. Lovely wine, which can be enjoyed alone, but today we had it with a Danish “Pariserbøf”, to which it was delicious.

Dark red wine with very light scent, perhaps of black currant. It’s a juicy but light wine with some tannin. It is an excellent as a daily wine, which we today had chilled for chicken pieces fried on the pan with vegetables. It was nice wine with the food, but it can also be enjoyed on its own.

The Alvarinho grape is best known in Vinho Verde DOC, but in other Portuguese regions it has also been taken into use. It is a yellow wine with the typical Alvarinho scents of peach and citrus. The taste has some acidity and a long aftertaste. We had the wine for fried salmon steak, to which it was perfect.
