Portuguese pearler

Casa Santos Lima Bons Ventos 2014, Portugal, AUD $9

This blend of four Portuguese red grapes is terrific value for money and, while it’s a clean, modern red wine, it has subtle differences from mainstream varieties. Deep red/purple colour with a fresh, slightly nutty, plummy aroma, it’s smooth and rounded, full of sweet ripe fruit flavour, soft tannins and good length. (screwcap)
