Portuguese Wines

  • Cigarra Red 2013

    Ruby in colour, Cigarra has an intense and complex aromas of berries, cherry and wild fruits. On the palate, the ripe red fruit concentration is well balanced.
  • Cigarra Shiraz Tinta Barroca 2012

    A smouldering, liquorice-laden red from Casa Santos Lima – makers of our top-selling Bons Ventos – this is tip top Portuguese winemaking.
  • Quinta de Bons Ventos 2014

    Nothing short of a sensation, this little red has been a success story at Oddbins over the past few years, such is its astonishing quality when price is considered. -->
  • Manz Dona Fátima Jampal 2014

    Dona Fátima is richly fragrant exotic fruit and underpinned it with gentle butter from the six months oak ageing.
  • Manz Pomar do Espirito Santo 2014

    Proving quality over quantity is the way to go. Intense flavouring from the Portuguese sun, with a complex, spicy character.
  • Cigarra White 2014

    What? A lovely, lemony, uplifting white for £6.50, from Casa Santos Lima, one of Lisboa’s best producers? You hear right.
  • Paseo White 2015

    Paseo White Wine, we would be so bold as to venture, lies midway between the flavour profile of Vinho Verde and Albariño and we think it has the best of both, as a bread manufacturer once said. It has the fresh, breezy, lemony charm of Vinho Verde in northern Portugal and elements of the tangy, tropical flavours of Albariño, from over the border and up the Spanish coast in Rías Baixas. However, it has a lower price than the average rate for Vinho Verde and Albariño – it’s win win, basically.
  • Paseo Red 2013

    "So refreshing, it tastes like your first drink after a long cycle in the Algarve, which is ironic, as it’s a Portuguese wine!" - The Herald
  • Quinta de Bons Ventos - Magnum 2013

    A Portuguese blend of four red varieties, this is ripe and warm with juicy flavours and is amazingly food friendly.

We were delighted that Wines of Portugal recognised our love affair with Portuguese wine, when they named us Best Independent Chain earlier this year.
We take no small interest in Portugal and are pretty damn excited as we believe that, like fans crammed into The Cavern Club to hear The Beatles or the first person to put sea salt in caramel, we are about to watch something explode in a big way.
Why so? Portuguese vintners have been quietly working away at what they do best – wine made from unique, local grape varieties that tastes unlike pretty much anything else on the market – for a long time. Which is wonderful, as they have really honed the art over the last 4,000-odd years. Lately, we’ve seen more exciting producers pop up than we’ve had hot meals, and we’ve been adding our favourites to our ever-expanding Portuguese range.

We are glad to say that we think there’ll be a lot more people banging the drum for Portugal now, as it has invested heavily in its wine export industry. Producers used to concentrate on exporting Port, keeping their wine for their home market, but they are now on an export drive.

They are jazzing up their labels; including more product information; there is even talk of anglicising grape names; and this year’s Portuguese Wine Fair was veritably buzzing.

But enough PR: let’s get down to the wine. Its closest equivalent, by way of a reference point, would be Spain or Italy. It has the rustic qualities of the former, with the food-friendliness of the latter. Word on the street is that Vinho Verde is reinventing itself and you can now find some seriously, er, serious wines from this northern Portuguese region. Ana, our Buyer, reckons the more southerly Alentejo is the region-to-watch for top value. You heard it here first…
