This is the top red from Portugal’s award winning Casa Ermelinda Freitas. An inspired combination of Portugal’s prized Alicante Bouschet grape, Cabernet and Syrah, all patiently aged in best oak. A sumptuous Reserva that last vintage won two Golds!
This luxurious, barrel-aged beauty comes from the Freitas family, whose 210 hectare estate near Lisbon is dedicated to producing some of Portugal’s finest wines. In 2008 they won ‘Best Red Wine in the World’ at the Vinalies Internationales competition in Paris, and fourth generation owner Leonor Freitas has been awarded a ‘Comendadora’ Order of Merit for services to Portugal’s wine trade. The Valoroso range was created to commemorate this honour. The Reserva is a rare marriage of plush Cabernet, Syrah and local speciality Alicante Bouschet, crafted by top winemaker Jaime Quendera. Matured for a year in French and US oak casks, it's packed with spicy black fruit and hints of vanilla. Decant an hour before serving with finest red meat dishes.
"Exceptional! So smooth and deep at the same time. Will now be included as standard in my wine order"
