ROBERT RECOMMENDS

Flavours of boysenberry and bittersweet chocolate dominate when describing this Chilian classic, Secret Carmenere of the Secret Colchagua Valley. This one leads to a long rich finish. The Shiraz from Shoofly, hails from the Adelaide hills. Friendly on the palate it exhibits a nose of violets, plums, and blueberry. It has a ripe flavor with a smooth finish. El Coto de Rioja Crianza, is moderately dense dark red in colour. Ripe strawberry and raspberry nose with a note of vanillia. Palate is smooth, balanced, fresh, dry and clean.

Casal Garcia was born in a year in which the vintage was particularly good, 1939. Returning by train from the grape harvest in the Douro, the French oenologist Eugène Hélisse decided to interrupt his journey to Oporto after passing the vines of the Quinta da Aveleda, in Penafiel. He introduced himself to the owner Roberto Guedes, impressed with what he had seen from the train: the vines were beautifully cared for and the land divided by grape variety, just as in France. This was not usual in the Vinho Verde region. After a long conversation together, owner and oenologist decided to work together and produce exemplary wines. The name came from their first wine which was produced from one of the vines of Aveleda: Casal Garcia.
