Three Portuguese wines featured in the Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2019, one of the most influent wine magazines of the world
The wine Quinta do Noval Vintage Port from the Douro wine region was the best positioned Portuguese wine of the list, in the 53th place with 98 points. Kim Marcus says this wine" offers the vivid plum, boysenberry, cassis and açaí berry fruit profile of the vintage, along with a dark edge of tar, baker's chocolate and salted licorice that courses underneath. The long finish lets the fruit play out, keeping singed alder and chai spice hints in the background. Smolderingly seductive.” The remaining winners, from the Douro region, are the Quinta do Vale Meão 2016 in the 56th position and the Wine & Soul Douro Manoella 2017, in the 98th position. Every year, Wine editors survey the wines reviewed over the previous 12 months. The Top 100 reveals the relationship between quality (represented by score); value (reflected by release price); availability (measured by cases made or imported); and what they call the “X-factor”–the excitement generated by a rising-star producer, a benchmark wine or a significant milestone for a wine region.
