From Winemaker of the Year, Jorge Alvès, this is a very fine, elegant and expressive Alentejo red. All native grapes, sustainably grown, with a very light hand in the cellar, it is textured, complex and elegant with spiced black fruit and freshness.

You may know the name – Amorim – largest producers of cork in the world. This, however, is winemaking on a micro-scale, amongst the oak forests of Alentejo. The family have come together and restored a wine estate that was founded in 1758. They combine the very best modern thinking with the great traditions of the past – that means using clay-pot amphorae and terracotta tinajas, as well as barrels, for the winemaking. Above all, however, is a true respect for the area's ecosystem, with sustainability at its core, plus minimal intervention in the wine cellar. The vineyards for Almeia de Cima lie at the highest point (424 metres altitude) to ensure a freshness and balance to this fine wine, made from all-native Portuguese grapes. Open early.

"Stewed cherries, plums, cloves and dried violets. Concentrated with a lightly bitter-spice, floral" James Suckling
