(2016) Though originally a Portuguese variety, today Portugeiser is a popular red wine grape in Germany and eastern Europe, and in this case, from a vineyard planted in the 1980s. Quite meaty, earthy and herbal, it then becomes much fresher and red-fruited, with raspberry freshness allied to a cracked river stone hint of minerality. Tannins are soft, and it's a highly quaffable and barbecue-friendly red.
