Something New from the Old World

For many years, we have been known to be the company who distribute California wine exclusively. I remember saying that we will only work with wines that we are familiar with, believe in quality and value. Now we found another portfolio of wine that we have taken several years to be familiar with, and can’t wait to share with you its excellent quality and value. This new portfolio of wine is from Portugal. Usually the first thing that most people will say about Portuguese wine is that it is SWEET, and we know they were thinking of Port. Port is not the only wine that the Portugal produces. There are lots of undiscovered and excellent quality still wine that are produced from various region of Portugal, using indigenous grape varietals such as Antao Va, Perrum, Alicante Bouschet, Tourigal Nacional Trincaderia, Aragonez and so on.

The Portuguese wines are gradually making their presence known in the world. So impressive that Matt Kramer from Wine Spectator moved to Portugal last year. He wrote about his impression and decision to move there here: Is Portugal the Most Exciting Wine Place on the Planet Today?. Look out for more coverage and Portugal wine reviews in Wine Spectator as he writes from there.
The wine that we have chosen to work with is specifically from the South East region of Portugal known as Alentejo. It is a small area that borders Spain. The region’s long, hot and dry summer, produces grapes that make wine of rich colours, intense fruits and fully matured body. At youth, the wine shows balanced acidity and elegant fruitiness. With some careful cellaring which has been done by the winery, the wines is gracefully rich showing soft tannins and mellow roundness. Qualities of wine that we know you will enjoy and appreciate.
