2017 Pinhal da Torre, Nova Saffre

£9.25 inc. VAT

Another great example of the quality red being produced by Portugal that’s very easy on the pocket as well as the pallet. Tastes far more expensive than it is.

Pinhal da Torre, based in the Ribatejo, are serious estate producing some very serious wines. Novra Safra is their entry level and uses indigenous varieties Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Tinta Roriz along with international ones such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.  All winemaking is traditional mixed with modern technology. They manipulate 60 hectares of their own vineyards with a rigorous attention to detail. Everything is hand picked, the wines are 50% foot trodden in stone lagares and the wines undergo a year’s ageing in French and American oak barrel – the better the wine the more new oak being used.

Ripe and plummy with other ripe fruit aromas such as damson and blackcurrant with a lovely smoky spice to it too. Velvety and rich on the palate but not too overpowering. This has structure and concentration that belies it’s rather modest price tag. If you love Malbec then give this a try.

It’s got to be steak – a nice juicy rib-eye from your local butcher of farm shop.

I can’t believe it’s not Gavi!

This superb Cortese from Piemonte gives many a more expensive Gavi a run for their money. So what’s in a name? Gavi di Gavi is certainly one that brings to mind classy Italian white and a price tag to match. This wine isn’t a Gavi di Gavi but it’s darn close to one as it […]
