Brigando Shiraz Tinta Roriz Touriga Nacional 2018
FOUR Gold for this amazing Portuguese 'black red'
If one person has done more than anyone else to give Portugal its reputation for fascinating wines and great value, it is José Neiva. As Tim Atkin MW pointed out, "the Portuguese wine revolution wouldn't have happened without him". Over the last decade José's cellar has won more awards than any other, with wines offering "ripe, accessible fruit, lush textures and good concentration, all at very affordable prices" (Jamie Goode). You'll find tasty Brigando packed with vibrant red berries and a sprinkle of spice (that's the Shiraz). But José also added local Tinta Roriz (silky strawberry notes) and a dash of Touriga Nacional (a port grape, it gives you extra fruit depth). Serve on its own or with grilled red meats, casserole or steak pie.
