WINE SPECTATOR REVIEWS BY GILLIAN SCIARETTA JUNE 2019 

Cortes de Cima Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – 89 PTS
“Currant and mulberry flavors are cast with graphite and menthol accents in this medium- to full-bodied red. Full tannins are nicely integrated into the clean finish, marked by spice and mineral details.” – GS

Cortes de Cima Pinot Noir 2016 – 88 PTS

“Light-bodied and charming, featuring cherry and raspberry notes accented by orange peel, tea and thyme details. Light tannins add some grip to the crisp, minerally finish” – GS

Cortes de Cima Dois Terroirs Tinto 2014 – 88 PTS

“Licorice-tinged cherry and plum notes mark this plump red, with baking spice and herb details and tangy elements, supported by supple, moderate tannins on the finish” – GS

Cortes de Cima Syrah 2015 – 87 PTS

“Concentrated, offering plush flavors of raspberry tart and cherry pie, this full-bodied red features rich undertones of baking spices and dark chocolate details, with notes of olive, tea and pepper trailing off on the finish” –GS

Chaminé Tinto 2017 – PTS

“Bright currant, raspberry and herb notes fill this lively, fresh red, with light tannins framing the white pepper, fresh earth and mineral flavors on the finish” – GS

Wine Enthusiast Reviews by Roger Voss APRIL 2019 

Homenagem a Hans Christian Andersen 2013 – 92 PTS

“Drawing on his Danish heritage, owner Hans Jorgensen pays homage to the writer of fairy tales in this wine. It is dense with big tannins but also with fine spice, rich black-fruit flavors and great concentration. It is a powerful wine that, with its tannins, should age further. “-  RV 

Cortes de Cima Syrah 2015 – 88 PTS

“Syrah does well in the cooler southern area of Vidigueira. It allows plenty of room for its aromatic character as well as dark-berry fruits and acidity. The wood aging has added spice to this wine that is now ready to drink.”-  RV

Cortes de Cima Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – 88 PTS

“This family-owned estate has produced a ripe, surprisingly soft wine with gentle tannins and rich blackberry fruits. Juicy acidity gives the wine a fresh edge.”-  RV

Cortes de Cima Branco 2017 – 87 PTS

“Light barrel aging has given this wine a smooth texture that balances the crisp fruit with its herbal overtones. It is a young wine still, fresh with acidity.”-  RV

Cortes de Cima Pinot Noir 2016 – 87 PTS

“This pure Pinot Noir is fruity, full of cherry flavors. Its soft tannins and earthy character are balanced by the juicy fruitiness and bright acidity at the end.”-  RV

Chaminé Tinto 2017 - 85 PTS

“An earthy wine, mainly blending Aragonez and Syrah, it has a soft texture with just enough tannins to sustain the black fruits and acidity.”-  RV
