Steven Spurrier, an English wine critic, included two Portuguese wines in his list of choices of the year.
Quinta do Vallado Moscatel-Galego 2010 and Meandro do Vale Meão 2008, both Douro wines, were the two Portuguese wines chosen for a list of 67 wines. Spurrier considers the Quinta do Vallado wine “a perfect aperitif and for light entrees” and Meandro do Vale Meão is “full of fruit and spice, fleshy yet firm with a true Douro grip and very good value”.
