27 January 2012
Ehrmanns is proud to announce a new listing for Quinta da Bacalhoa Red – DO Peninsula de Setubal, in Majestic available from January 2012.
Wine of the week written by Majestic Manager Louise Stonestreet, published by Horsham & Billingshurst Advertiser, ‘Quinta da Bacalhoa – Peninsula de Setubal’ buy 2 save £3 per bottle from £13.49.
“The 15th Century Quinta da Bacalhoa estate, formerly known as Vila Fresca, used to be owned by the Portuguese royal family. Turning to commercial wine-making in the 1970s, it is now one of Portugal’s largest porducers.
This wine is an unusual ‘iberian style’ claret, blended from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. On the nose there is a delightful array of pencil shavings, tobacco and sandal wood. The palate offers a supple mouthfeel boosted by juicy bramble fruit. Careful use of oak produces nutty, cedar-like tannins.
This is a ‘big’ wine which will be best paired to protein-rich food in order to complement the tannins. Why not try it this weekend with your roast beef or fillet steak – or maybe with the cheeseboard afterwards?”
Its amazing quality scored 93 PTS – EDITOR’S CHOICE – Wine Enthusiast Magazine –December 2009;
93 PTS – EDITOR’S CHOICE – Wine Enthusiast Magazine – September 2010 & TOP 100 Wine Enthusiast Magazine 2010
A fantastic wine to have with red meats, game or with a fine selection of cheese.
