Vinho Tinto Eternal Wine Book

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.

Wines from Setúbal Posted on Sat, November 25, 2017 09:37:50

Rating in Martins: Not rated.

Some years ago, I often bought B-i-B wines, since I think they are usually good and reasonably priced. And you can always pull a glass without drinking the whole bottle. Now that I’ve got a vacuum pump, the problem is not that big, and also, I wish to try many different wines, so now a days I rarely bue B-i-B.

Friday, we invited a group of young people for dinner and this Portuguese daily wine from Setúbal was a good choice.

It is a dark red wine, with scents of red berries and cloves, pleasant tannins and medium finish. The wine was poured on carafes and enjoyed with our Danish version of the Portuguese casserole, cozido made with both beef, pork and chicken, and for that dish the wine was very nice.

The wine is NOT made ofrom the Italian Primitivodrue, but the Minho regions own Alvarinho. It is a pale yellow wine, with scents of peach, a little citrus and vanilla. The wine has some acidity but is not carbonated and has a long finish. We had the wine with seafood wraps, to which it went well.

Rating in Martins: Not rated.

This wine comes from the Alto Cávado area in the Vinho Verde region, where you may still encounter wild horses according to information on the label. This is probably why horses are depicted on the top label.

A very yellow wine with scents of peach, pear and citrus. Nice acidity in a non-carbonated wine. Pleasant wine when enjoyed on its own, but also fine wine food. Today we enjoyed it for fried plaice fillets with vegetables.
