April 2013 Award Winning Portuguese Wines
On the 18th April 2013, Olly Smith unveiled his selection of the 50 Great Portuguese Wines at Centre Point in London.
We are very proud to announce that two of our wines were amongst the winners. They are:
- Filipa Pato FP Branco 2012: the 2011 vintage had also been selected by Julia Harding MW last year. Filipa is obviously very consistent. This is what Olly Smith thinks of it "Sip it and see for yourself the splash of freshness, like catching a whiff of the seaside on a cool breeze. Long-lasting flavours
resonate on the finish and I love the concept of wine "without make-up". Sometimes we can do too much to smother what's there - fruit, glorious fruit".
- Anselmo Mendes Vinho Verde Muros de Melgaço Alvarinho 2011: the bottle shaped like the Shard caught Olly's eye and his taste buds "Melgaço? I say Megalicious. It's mega in every way with a hoofing fat rich creamy texture, showing a touch of evolution as you'd expect for its age which adds a certain savoury complexity. One to pair with creamy seaside dishes. Matched with fish pie, this is scrumptious."
We only have a few bottles of Muros de Melgaço 2011 left before moving onto 2012 so contact us promptly if you want to try this award-winner!
