Nice value here - plummy fruit with some floral notes, and a healthy dose of minerality to add to the complexity. Food friendly and very approachable - would love to visit the Beira area and investigate further!

Light and quite acidic, but has charm.

Soft, easy-going tempranillo-dominated red. Not particularly complex, but good quality red fruits, with little to no oak. All too easy to quaff, and you could do a lot worse for your $13. Fine value indeed. Tasted May 2017.
