2017 Quinta da Aveleda Loureiro-Alvarinho Vinho Verde Top Pick!
2017 Quinta da Aveleda Loureiro-Alvarinho Vinho Verde

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Amazing: Fresh white refreshment for $10. Buy a case and you’ll have a savory, salty Atlantic white to drink all summer long. Right now, it’s delicate, with filigreed lemon-lime flavors offering fruit depth before signing off in a crisp, clean finish. Chill it as an early-evening aperitif, a brunch wine for bacalhão fritters or pike quenelles, or a picnic wine for ventresca tuna salad."

Caves Messias Santola "Crab Wine" Vinho Verde

Produced from Loureiro and Pederña grapes grown in the granitic soils of the Vinho Verde region, the Santola (or as we here are calling it, "the crab wine") is a delicious, spritely and refreshing white. It doesn't get much more traditional, thirst-quenching or seasonally perfect then this wine. Delicious, low in alcohol, slightly fizzy and way too easy to drink!

2016 Casa Ferreirinha "Esteva" Douro

Wine Spectator: "Fresh, featuring lively raspberry and cranberry fruit edged with citrusy acidity and mineral undertones. Hints of white pepper and herb detail the long, crisp finish. (GS)" (06/2018) K&L Notes: This delicious Douro red always seems a bit brighter, fresher and more high toned than others, and the 2016 is no exception. It is delicious, very expressive, and recomended for a great interpretation of a traditional, everyday Douro red.

2017 Soalheiro Alvarinho Vinho Verde

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Alvarinho is dry (3.5 grams of sugar and 6.5 grams of total acidity) and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. Colloquially known as the "classico," the flagship unoaked Alvarinho, is typically one of the finest values in Vinho Verde. It ages effortlessly. It's concentrated and structured. Plus, with 100,000 bottles produced, there's enough of it to make it a little easier to acquire than some specialty bottlings. Sourced from 25-year-old vines, this shows off that bit of "Soalheiro Green," as I like to call it, th ...Read More »

Taylor 20 Year Old Tawny Port

94 points Wine & Spirits: "A complex and satisfying Tawny, this sits on the cusp of maturity with freshness continuing to infuse its deepening flavors. That freshness arrives in bold scents of orange zest and juicy citrus flavors, while the maturity mellows those flavors into layers of Marcona almond, date and sweet oak-smoke notes. It finishes with a hint of schist in the tannins. For fruit and cheese at the end of the meal."

Cedary cigar box aromas, savoury scents of wild herbs and a discreet aura of fresh mint add a further layer of complexity.

Filipa Pato "3B" Rosé Extra Bruto Bairrada

A blend of red Baga and white Bical grapes, this is a fantastic, very low dosage (this is DRY!) rosé sparkler. Filipa Pato learned from Mr. Bairrada himself, her father Luis Pato, and currently makes her own wines in a winery they both share. Famous for its highly calcareous clay soil, Bairrada makes red wines that bring to mind Barolo, whites which are similarly fine and age-worthy, as well as some of the very best Champagne method sparkling wines on the Iberian peninusla.

2017 Soalheiro "Allo" Vinho Verde

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 ALLO (from the AL of Alvarinho and the LO of Loureiro) marked a departure last year for Soalheiro, generally considered to be an Alvarinho specialist (not that they were wholly uninvolved with Loureiro). It is a 70/30 blend of Alvarinho and Loureiro coming in at a relatively modest 11% alcohol (more like a Loureiro than an Alvarinho).

Madeira Vintners "Fenix" Seco Madeira

Isabella Gonzalez makes this delicious, drier style (50g residual sugar) Madeira. A new entrant to the Madeira market, this strikes a lovely balance between off dry amontillado saltiness and dry oloroso richness. It would be delicious paired with any number of richer soups (French Onion, butternut squash, rich, creamy tomato with tarragon), a cheese plate, or perhaps to add interest to a cocktail, mixed with bourbon, rye or Scotch in place of sherry.

What is a white Tawny Port? Good question. Produced from white grapes grown in the Douro, this beautiful Tawny is elaborated over time in wood barrels in a similar way to traditional Tawnies. However, the similarity stops there, as this unique product actually averages 15 years of age (it just does not state so because 15 year-old Tawny is not a recognized category).
