Deep clear ruby colour.
A clean nose with chocolate, wood, vanilla custard and sweet cherries and plums.
On the palate medium body and acidity, ripe slightly jammy red plums and damsons with a long sweeter spiced finish. From a tropical region you wouldn't expect this dept and quality.

Blend of Trincadeira, Aragonez, Moreto and Alfrocheiro
Medium deep clear ruby color.
Aromas of toasted smokey French oak, rubber, cinnamon with a some red fruit on medium intensity.
Dry plummy fruit with a bitter savoury hint what turns into sour cherries.
Nicely balanced all around, maybe a chilling helps to be fresh up acidity.

Clear Medium(+) ruby color.
In the nose it is beautiful with a slightly spiced dark chocolate, raspberries with a touch of cream, violets and black pepper.
On the palate medium body, soft tannins, fresh acidity, packed with not overripe black fruits, black cherry and a green herb finish.
The best buy so far since I am in Portugal.

The blend: Moscatel-Pernao Pires
A little old to open maybe, but there is no excuse being out of balance already. In the nose the Moscatel aromas come 1st with apple and medicine on low intensity.
On the palate medium(-) acidity and again Moscatel backbone which turns to medicine flavored sweet finish.

The Blend: Baga-Castelao-Tinta Roriz
Light clear ruby color.
Light aromas of ripe amarelle cherries and overrripe plums.
On the palate similar as in the nose as starts more plummy and turns little more sour but always has a little sweetness on the tongue. Light body, simple table wine, medium(-) acidity, low tannins.
As chilled you can enjoy it in the Summer with food.
Similar to many reds of La Mancha of Spain with a little more freshness.

Blend: Roupeira-Rabo de Ovelha-Arinto
Not the latest vintage, maybe by that was a very very cheap offer where I bought (less than 1,50 Euros)
In the nose clear Melon and apricot on medium intensity. Similar flavors on the palate with medium acidity, intensity and viscosity. Medium(-) body, a little nice bitterness on a fairly long finish. Great value, needs to be chilled! Similar to the whites of North Balaton of Hungary with a little less acidity.

The blend: Antao Vaz-Arinto-Fernao Pires.
Very nice clean nose with white flowers as acacia and orange blossoms, touch of fresh springtime morning dew.
On the palate, Medium+ acidity, medium body, flavors of ripe red-fleshed grapefruit, medium intensity.
Mouthwatering, long- acidic finish.
Well-balanced, good value, refreshing all-Portuguese varieties.

Medium pale straw color and few tiny bubbles.
In the nose green apple and grapiness, white and yellow flowers with a touch lime-peel.
On the palate a lot more of the lime flavor, grapefruit and also a sweeter orange at the background. Basically lots of citrus, good acidity, medium+finish and light body.
A bargain for sparkling wine lovers for the Summer.

Nice Chardonnay for the price. Flavor profile which is closer to an AOC Chablis than a Burgundian style with good acidity and more varietal elements than wood.

When the price is low in Chile you cannot expect too much but there is always a chance to get something which would cost a lot more in the rest of the world. This wine has nothing outstandingly great but nothing either what you could criticize for this low price. Fresh, fruity, simple.

On the palate nice ripe red prunes with a candy-like aftertaste. Overall very simple, light bodied, fresh.

Very delicately spiced in the nose, maybe a bit of Potassium Sorbate effect but does not result anything what would smell as a fault, in fact smells like a buttery a freh bakery product. On the palate really shows the cool climate elegance with freshness, light body, savory but ripe red fruit, soft tannins. Could be a good german red similar to this.

I received this wine with ludicrously low price after being a little old. It was worth to have go. Reduced aromatic profile with quince, ginder, turkish delight, minerals.
On the palate have lost some acidity but still spicy enough with similar flavors as aromas but more of the spices with a herby-watery medium finish.

In the nose oxidized smoky woody. On the palate still interesting a bit jammy with dark plum marmalade and dried figs. The tannins are soften, silky, the acidity has lowered a lot. Reminds me some of the reds of Murcilla.

Different style of Camenere from all the others I have tasted recently.
Heavier sweet woody aromas in the nose with a bit overripe plums and red fruits. In the mouth just doesnt feel as fresh, sweeter by the wood, lees elegant.

Aromas of green apple-peel, pomelo and minerals. Obviously it is older by 1 year then the ideal and has lost some fruitiness but generally much more moderate flavors then the ones of Casablanca o Leyda. Flavors of pomelo, gooseberries, not fully ripe peach with some minerality, long finish. Fresh and great for the creamy pasta.

Aromaticly clean, similar to many tropical driven NZ Sauvignons which have at least the double of the price or more. The acidity is not biting but fresh enough as very tropical flavor profile just as in the nose. Easy drinking, ṕerfect as chilled in a hot beach of the Summer.

A lot of influence of the barrels in the nose with some smoke and dark berries. On the palate very similar with so much concentration. Still fresh, full bodied, still with plenty of tannins to wait for a few more years.

Very mineral in the nose with a stranger broken young tree branch kind of aroma. On the palate savory flavor dominates over dark berries and long long finish. Medium bodied, great acidity, medium tannin. I tasted a bit cold 1st and I did not like but then all the balance and savoriness arrived.

As an unfiltered wine has a slightly cloudy apple juice appearance. In the nose a little oxidized sliced apple and quince. Yellow apples with unfiltered pear juice with lot of minerality. A long acidic lemon based finish. A wine to wait 4 years at least.
