POT or PORT?

4201

Hmmm...

Not sure that I'll be having either today, but this weekend we'll be popping corks on some pretty stellar dry wines from Portugal! I italicize "dry" because most people think of sweet and succulent Port when they hear Portuguese wine. Most of you have seen our Port section here at the shop and it impresses most to say the least, but the real value in Portugal is their red and whites under 20 bucks.

Our Governor John Carney sat down yesterday with open ears about the legalization of recreational marijuana, so maybe sometime soon you'll get to enjoy both pot and Portuguese wine in the same seating without getting cuffs slapped on your wrists.

Time will tell. But meanwhile, here's what we've got... pass the dutchie.

15% Alicante Bouschet ~ 15% Syrah

Aged 6 months in 60% French oak and 40% American oak barrels from Alentejo. All 4 grape varieties come together in a rich, powerful palate full of explosive black fruit and fine, focused acidity. The structure shows that the wine can age further although it's pretty tasty today!

b3

75% Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) ~ 25% Touriga Nacional

Aged for 12 months in stainless steel vats. Fruity aroma with very elegant and discreet minerality. Berries and spices, fresh, with a fruity lasting finish. Great Summer porch pounder... put a slight chill on it!

 

Beyra 2015 Beira Branco
Regularly Priced at $14.99
$10.79 with 12-pack Sampler Case Purchase!

b4

50% Siria ~ 50% Fonte Cal

Mineral and citrus fruitiness, grapefruit, hints of nettle and white flowers, very fresh and light on the palate, revealing the altitude of the vineyards. The soul of this wine lies in the unique combination of the Síria and Fonte Cal native grape varieties, from old vines planted in granite and schist soils with quartz veins, in the Douro River's hydrographical basin, at an average altitude of 700 metres.
Excellent as an aperitif, with appetisers, grilled fish and shellfish and to share with friends!
