Tasting Notes: This interesting blend is a delicious example of the fantastic value wines of Lisboa. The grapes saw good canopy management to get a balanced ripeness in the hot sun and were then harvested a couple of weeks earlier than usual which brings the potential ABV down to 11%. Classic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks and the wine stays in the steel in the following months to preserve this intense fruit profile. Ripe berry fruit flavours on the nose pleasantly leads through to a smooth, fruity palate.

DFJ Vinhos is one of Portugal`s most innovative and highly awarded wine producers, winning best Portuguese producer in both the New York International Competition and Berliner Wine competition in 2018. They control estates in the Lisboa, Douro, Setubal, Alentejo and Tejo wine regions and work with 22 different grape varieties. The company is headed by Portugal’s top winemaker, José Neiva, who has now been leading the way for over 40 years and, at the recent `Portuguese Wine Oscars`, he was made `Senhor do Vinho` - the highest accolade for an outstanding career.

The Vinho Regional Lisboa (previously known as Estremadura) extends north and west of Lisbon, following the rugged Atlantic coastline. It is Portugal`s third largest wine producing region in volume terms, but arguably the source of the country`s best value table wines. Most of the region enjoys a maritime climate that allows production of fresh whites and balanced red wines. The last ten years have seen a surge of ambitious small growers making far more interesting wines across a wide selection of grape varietals.
