2 December 20
The Wine Enthusiast Top 100 is available and highlights 7 Portuguese wines.
After the Top 100 of perfect wines to keep in the cellar, Wine Enthusiast launches the long-awaited ranking - the Top 100 of the wines of the year. Of the more than 25,000 wine references that were on the tasting, seven Portuguese wines were selected for this top: #27 | 95 points | Herdade do Esporão 2018 Esporão Private Selection Sémillon (Alentejo) – ‘Wood aged and ageworthy, it is rich in tropical fruits, spice and toastiness. While it could be enjoyed now, it will be even better after 2023.’ #37 | 93 points | Anselmo Mendes 2019 Contacto Alvarinho (Vinho Verde) – ‘The wine's apple flavors have concentration and, along with the texture, suggest potential for aging. Drink ideally from 2021.’ #49 | 94 points | Quinta do Crasto 2016 Reserva Vinhas Velhas Red (Douro) – ‘A blend of 30 grape varieties from vines at least 70 years old, this wine boasts denisty and a firm structure. It is powered by tannins, dark black-fruit flavors and great concentration, and is an impressive wine that needs time. Drink from 2022.’ #63 | 93 points | Quinta da Rede 2018 Grande Reserva White (Douro) - 'It is dense from lees aging, ripe and full of white fruits that are touched by citrus. Drink this fine wine from 2021.' #77 | 92 points | Casa Relvas 2018 Herdade de São Miguel Escolha dos Enólogos Red (Alentejo) - 'It has structure as well as powerful black-fruit flavors that come through the dark chocolate and spice accents. Drink from 2022.' #94 | 92 points | Cossart Gordon 2008 Colheita Single Harvest Verdelho (Madeira) - 'Orange and candied lemon-peel flavors are preserved by the wine's total freshness and spice. Drink now.' #99 | 90 points | DFJ Vinhos 2017 Aluado Reserva Alicante Bouschet (Lisboa) - 'It exudes structure and concentration, with big blackberry fruits that keep freshness very much upfront. Drink now.' Good news to close the year and great suggestions for drinking this Christmas
