Wines of Portugal on the Top 100 of the Wine Enthusiast magazine
22 November 19
Four Portuguese wines were distinguished on the Top 100 of one of the most prestigious wine magazines in the world
Quinta do Vale Meão 2016 Red (Douro) reached the 8th place and is the best rated Portuguese wine on the list. Wine Enthusiast says “the potential of this wine, with its poise between juicy acidity and structure, is enormous. A mineral texture provides the essential connection with the terroir of the Douro Superior. It comes from one of the top Douro estates, the last to be created by Dona Antonia Ferreira and one that is still in the hands of her descendants.” This year, Wine Enthusiast’s tasting panel reviewed more than 24,000 wines from around the globe, exploring a multitude of regions, styles and price points. This yearly roundup of the best-of-the-best showcases the incredible diversity of high-scoring wines on the market. Each was chosen for a myriad of reasons, including high quality-to-price ratios, good market availability, and an x-factor that can’t be precisely defined.
