Pimenta 2007

On Wednesday, Herself was going to Donnybrook Fair to get a few bits so I asked her to pick up a bottle of Pegos Claros, unfortunately there wasn't any so she picked up a bottle of the wine at left. Pimenta from the Alentejano regions of Portugal.

I have had a good few Portugese wines of late and they have been consistently good. This one was made with Touriga Nacional, Aragones and Trincadeira grapes, none of which I have heard of.

Name: Pimenta
Year: 2007
Price: €11-99
Notes: Like the Pegos Claros this wine was quite delicious. Surprisingly complex, a little fruit, lots of structure, complexity and a lingering finish. It tasted like a much more expensive wine. DF comes up trumps again.

Tomorrow I shall wax lyrical and OT on the Glenmorangie tasting.
