Xisto Ilimitado Douro Branco 2019

So silky, nutty, chardonnay-like. Prodigious green apple, juicy yellow plum. Mineral and textured in a distinctly Portuguese way. — 8 days ago

Delectable mistakenly put it as the red- but that white is a damn good wine

Quinta Maria Izabel

Branco 2019

Very refined, pure, fresh, balanced & elegant wine. Perfect as apéro-wine, with shellfish or supporting a refined fish-dish (not overruling it). Great value for money. — 8 days ago

Destino Fifth Empire

Douro White Blend 2020

Big apple on the nose, round but not boring. Stood up well and complimented jerk shrimp. — a day ago

Quinta de la Rosa

Reserva Quinta De La Rosa Douro Red Blend 2018

So incredibly smooth right out of the gate. Really dark and a wonderful red wine made out of port grapes. Heavy and rich with lots and lots of dark fruits, all of them — 15 days ago

Quinta do Vallado

Douro Touriga Nacional

I screwed up and forgot to take a picture of the bottle. The image is from their site. Very dark, blackish rubi robe, nose of blackcurrant, anise and tobacco, with crushed flowers. Dense, medium to full bodied, fine tannins and absolutely singing now, albeit no rush. Great red done in the old old world classical way. Great stuff !! — 5 days ago

Ruby purple in colour. Dark fruits aroma. A little spice, mild tannins with dark stone fruits and a slight smoky hint too.

Enjoyable on its own and with homemade ham and mozzarella pizza.

Ah, @Trixie sorry no, that's an error. Homemade pizza dough with some fab locally sourced cheeses and ham.
