New Portuguese Arrivals

Pedro Araujo launched the Louriero 2009 from his iconic Quinta do Ameal estate last week. Located just outside Ponte de Lima, Ameal has built up an extraordinary reputation for Vinho Verde, based on bio-dynamics and very low yields.

“2009 might turn out to be the best yet” commented Araujo. Contact Raymond Reynolds Ltd for further information [email protected]

Niepoort – Ubunto

Normally sold in this country as Drink Me (from the Douro), in deference to Alice’s potion bottle in Wonderland, “Ubuntu” was sold to a select group of premium retailers, including Selfridges, with reports of delighted consumer reactions to both label and contents!

Imbibros is delighted to announce the arrival of new wines and new vintages from the Alentejo producer, Herdade Grande.

The range has 2 excellent white wines from the indigenous Antao Vaz, Arinto and Roupeiro varieties: Condado das Vinhas is beautifully crisp and fresh, while the Herdade Grande Branco has a touch of oak maturation adding a rounder, slightly nutty character.

The reds also focus on local varieties with Monte das Talhas being an Aragonez and Trincadeira blend, while the Estate red blends Aragonez with Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet. Finally the super-premium Herdade Grande Reserva is a blend of Syrah and Touriga Nacional which shows great complexity and ageing potential.

All of the Herdade Grande wines offer terrific quality at their respective price level. E-mail [email protected] for further information.

DFJ Vinhos has just launched a new Arinto varietal wine from the Lisboa region. “Paxis” is a deliciously refreshing example of the unique mineral and citrusy wine style the grape produces.

Portugalia Wines has just expanded its’ excellent range from DFJ Vinhos. Additions include the dual varietal Pinot Noir & Alfrocheiro under the DFJ brand and the Segada White which is a blend of Fernao Pires, Chardonnay and Arinto.
