Last year we ventured into Portugal for the first time with Anciano. Top producer Casa Santos Lima is our partner and both wines have already been sold successfully in Brazil. Now, we are delighted they have been recognised in a prestigious wine competition. 2016 Anciano Douro Reserva was awarded a Silver Medal at the recent 2019 International Wine Challenge with 90 points, together with the Lisboa Reserva 2016 which picked up a Bronze.
“Black plums with smoke and violet aromas and some complex herbal notes. The spicy and savoury palate shows baked fruit flavours and sooty tannins with good length of flavour.” 90 Points, Silver Medal
“Juicy dark cherry, raspberry, plums, cloves, thyme. Nice spice with a fresh finish, charming!” 86 Points, Bronze Medal
