Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Portada Winemaker's Selection

Portada Winemaker's Selection 2016

PortugalPortada is made in the classic manner, fermented in stainless steel vats with twice daily pumpovers. Post ferment, the cap is plunged for 30 days as the wine undergoes MLF. The blend is big, mixing tinta roriz, alicante bouschet, cabernet sauvignon, caladoc, castelão, pinot noir, and touriga nacional. The colour is deep, and the nose fragrant with rich, aromatic, juicy, berries with a hint of smoke. Clean, bright style with firm acidity, it is best served with food. Hamburgers and pizza come to mind as well as beef tacos or cheese dishes.
