About Silk & Spice Red Blend 2018 Portugal

The 2016 was #15 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys of 2018! Silk & Spice is the Portuguese red for every day that really delivers.

The grapes selected for Silk & Spice come from the regions Dão, Bairrada, and Lisboa, and are vinified separately. After total destemming and gentle crushing the grapes were fermentated at a controlled temperature with short maceration to retain freshness. The wine then aged for 6 months in American oak barrels. Innumerable tastings and analyses were carried out to detrmine the final blend of  40% Touriga Nacional, 20% Baga, 20% Syrah, 20% Alicante Bouschet, creating a wine with delightfully forward fruit and very soft tannins.


This 2018 received another 90 point score from Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "This celebration of Portugal’s intrepid explorations in the Far East is a ripe, smooth, lightly toasty wine. Its texture is soft, open with black currant fruits, spice and fine finishing acidity. Drink now."
