Alvarinho ‘Granit’, Soalheiro, Vinho Verde

100% Alvarinho (same as Albarino over the border in Spain) Qunita do Soalheiro are the benchmark producer of Alvarinho. Based in the Vinho Verde region, their wines are a league above other producers; more elegant and complex. This particular bottling, named 'Granit' after the soils in this vineyard, is my favourite; a rich, complex expression of the grape with a lovely mineral texture and a very long, pure finish. A little bit similar to really good 1er Cru Chablis, this is perfect with things like grilled white fish with lemon and olive oil or shellfish (lobster salad would be sublime). Something a bit different but truly World class. You won't be disappointed.

Lavradores de Feitoria Tinto

Grapes - Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Tinta BarrocaLavradores de Feitoria is a unique project, created in 2000. Resulting from the union of owners of 18 Quintas spread throughout the best terroirs in the 3 sub-regions of the Douro region (Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo and Douro Superior). Together, they have a total area of vineyard of more than 600 ha. The aim was to show the best of what the Douro can offer and to offer great value; this wine really sums up the Douro for me.A typical Douro blend of grapes offers real character, and the modern winemaking creates a smooth rich wine. Together, we have a wine of great balance and finesse. Goes well with grilled meats and vegetables and can handle a bit of spice!

Raza, Quinta da Raza, Vinho Verde

This Vinho Verde (northern Portugal), has always been one of our most popular wines. Quinta da Raza is a fifth generation family winery that makes some of the most expressive wines in the region. This wine is a blend of Arinto, Azal & Trajadura and is probably the most refreshing wine on our list. The wine is bottled young and retains a little spritz which when drunk cold on a hot day really hits the spot! Perfect summer wine for the garden or picnics (11.5% abv) and great with salads and grilled shellfish. You will need more than one bottle of this...
