Awards
16 January 14
Joshua Greene, Wine & Spirits editor, unveiled his favorite Portuguese wines.
Today the 50 Great Portuguese wines were revealed at New York Public Library by Joshua Greene. The Portuguese wine’s quality and diversity enchanted the wine critic, who confessed being surprised with the Portuguese wine sector transformation during the last decade. To achieve a 50 Great list, Joshua Greene tasted 600 Portuguese wines and visited Portugal several times (fact that reignited his passion for Portugal). Joshua Greene was the second wine personality chosen by ViniPortugal to select 50 Great Portuguese wines for the U.S., after the success of the 50 Great Wines by Doug Frost, Master of Wine and Master Sommelier, in 2013. Joshua Greene is a Portuguese wine connoisseur: he tastes Portuguese wines for over 25 years and visited the country many times. ViniPortugal aims to approach Portuguese wines to U.S. wine consumers and opinion leaders with the 50 Great events, showing the quality of Portuguese wines available in this market. “What makes the difference is the concentration of diverse terroirs, climates and grape varieties that you can’t find anywhere else in the world. It’s a small country, but a world of diversity. The wine sector evolution has been amazing. I hope U.S. market will enjoy my selection, which was based on the distinctive and traditional character of Portuguese wines. I hope wine consumers taste and discover the Portuguese wine charm. I believe they will.” 50 Great Portuguese Wines 2013 Adriano Ramos Pinto, Collection 2009, red, Douro Aliança, Quinta da Dôna 2009, red, Bairrada Anselmo Mendes Vinhos, Contacto 2012, white, Vinho Verde Casa de Mouraz, Encruzado 2012, white, Dão Casa de Mouraz, Elfa 2010, red, Dão Casca Wines, Monte Cascas Malvasia 2011, White, Colares Duorum Vinhos, Reserva Vinhas Velhas 2009, red, Douro Enoport United Wines, Quinta do Boição Reserva 2012, white, Bucelas Folias de Baco, Olho no Pé Grande Reserva 2008, red, Douro Fonseca Porto Vintage 2011 FTP Vinhos, Quinta do Serrado Reserva 2009, red, Dão Herdade de Vale Barqueiros Reserva 2008, red, Alentejo Herdade do Esporão Reserva 2010, red, Alentejo Herdade do Esporão Verdelho 2012, white, Alentejo IdealDrinks, Eminência 2010, white, Vinho Verde João Brito e Cunha, Quinta de S.
