A very underrated wine!
We still really enjoy this wine
We first tried this in a restaurant on a visit to Portugal and have imported 3 x 12 boxes since. Not the most expensive, but we feel it's great value for the money and is suitable for drinking with a meal or on it's own.

A nice wine at a very good price
We came across this on a trip to Portugal in 2019 and since ordered a couple of 12 x boxes since. Very palatable, not too sweet, great value.
