Alvaro Castro Primus 2014 (case of 6)
The Primus from one of our favorite producers, Quinta da Pellada, is a lovely wine that can be enjoyed now or also saved for a long time. Alvaro Castro the winemaker says he would prefer to keep it for 5 years but we do believe it is an excellent wine already now. It is is fresh yet it feels full. It is an excellent mix of exotic fruit and citrus blended with pleasnt minerality and acidity. No wonder that Parker gave the 2011 vintage 95 pts and it has also receive high accolaes Janis Robinson (17+ pts) and Jamie Goode (91 pts). It is a field blend so the exact composition is not know but it is dominated to by Encruzado and according to the winemaker himself it is a total of 39 varieties among these are Cerceal, Bical, Verdelho and Terrantez.
Enjoy from now and until 2025.
