Quinta da Lagoalva

The running of Quinta da Lagoalva is very much a family affair. The Campilho’s have gained a reputation in their local region for the cultivation of excellent produce, across a whole range of crops that they grow – not just grapes. However, it is their grape production that we are most interested in! Headed up by Diogo, the winemaking arm of their business has improved considerably in recent years. Like many young Portuguese winemakers, Diogo travelled abroad to learn his craft before returning to work with the indigenous grapes of his homeland.

Having completed his training in Australia’s Hunter Valley, it could be argued that Diogo’s wines are slightly more polished than the particularly rustic wines that many of his neighbours produce. This is certainly the case for his Castelão/Touriga Nacional blend, a ripe, juicy red that is well rounded and displays a touch of oak spice on the finish.

This wine has an intense garnet-red colour, with complex aromas of ripe black fruits, spices and vanilla. In the mouth it has a full volume, with elegant tannins and is long lasting.

A deeply satisfying red

Light, tasty and very drinkable this is an excellent Portuguese wine. Happily at home accompanying pasta or red meat dishes and enjoyable as the warmer evenings come round again.
