Nothing short of a sensation, this little red wine has been a success story at WineOnline.ie over the past few years, such is its astonishing quality when price is considered.
A Portuguese blend of four red varieties, this is ripe and warm with juicy flavours and is amazingly food friendly. It's usually almost impossible to find this much character and pizazz in a wine at this price but this red is truly the real deal.
A big smiling mouthful of wine; layers of smooth ripe dark fruits with rounded tannins on the finish. This will go down nicely with most red or white meats, grilled lamb chops, or baked mushrooms.
Food Matches: Roast lamb, grilled or barbecued pork, pasta, cheese and pizza
