In this episode, we taste a wonderful wine kindly dispatched to us by Lusus wines.
( Our interview with them can be seen by following the following link https://youtu.be/hdaM0Pce95o )
Lusus wines only import and sell great Portuguese wines and this is certainly one of them!
This wine comes from the Quinta Da Casaboa vineyard and our interview with their lovely General Manager can be seen at https://youtu.be/5yHJ1regwkw
This particular wine is produced in homage to Joanna’s Grandfather, and only the best grapes are used to produce this wine.
If due to a particular year’s weather the grapes don’t meet exacting standards the vineyard does not produce a “Reserva” that year.
A great aroma of cherries and blackcurrants, with John M getting notes of marzipan while John L was getting notes of vanilla.
The taste was beautiful and did not disappoint with blackcurrant and black cherry tastes to the fore with a great mouthfeel.
The wine has a very velvety or creamy feel.
We could both detect a hint of oak flavour.
John M describes drinking this wine as not just tasting but an experience.
At the time of writing this wine has proved so popular that Lusus had already run out of stock so we are unable to give you a link to the page devoted just to this wine, but the good news is more is on the way and this page should lead you to the details once the wine has arrived from Sunny Portugal!
