PORTUGAL WINE GUIDE
“You could be forgiven for thinking that Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc rule the world,” says wine critic Sarah Ahmed - aka The Wine Detective.
“So what joy that Portugal has a glittering array of over 250 native grape varieties planted across some thirty wine regions. What’s more, Portugal has bucked the single varietal trend; its winemakers are highly skilled in the art of blending. Not just grape varieties either; a new generation of winemakers cleverly combine modern and traditional techniques. The result? A rich kaleidoscope of truly unique flavours, textures and aromas.”
Sarah is a huge fan of Portuguese wine, and pays frequent visits to the country from her base in the UK. For up-to-date information on new wines and producers, together with tasting notes and details of wine-based events, read her blog - click HERE for details.
