Rare Wines: BULAS Very Old Port

BULAS - Very Old Port Wine

There’s a new addition to Casa Portuguesa’s Rare Wines Collection: BULAS Very Old Port.

At Quinta da Costa de Baixo, the producing force of Bulas Wines, there’s an old cellar and warehouse dating from 1840 that still keeps it’s original design.

That’s where amazing secrets are kept: aged casks with old – and very old – wine. “Very fine wine”, nurtured for generations, that is now for us to taste, as a generous treasure from the Douro tradition.

BULAS Very Old Port is one such secrets – an exceptional 100 plus years Tawny Port of which just 200 numbered bottles were recently made available.

Gold coloured with predominant dark green notes, this wine’s bouquet is complex and intense, delighting us with memories of toast, honey, caramel, dry fruit, damask, figs and orange.

On the mouth, it’s a rich, full bodied wine unveiling a range of exuberant, intense flavours, and with a long, very persistent finishing.

Gold coloured with dark green notes, a complex and intense bouquet, and with exuberant flavours that lead to a very persistent finishing, this unique, very old, wine is the latest, and certainly one of the most notable, additions to our Rare Wines Collection.

Find out more about BULAS Very Old Port on our online wine shop.

The perfect picnic wine?

Vinho Verde Picnic Wine Warszawa

Some things just taste better in the summer…

The perfect picnic wine? Susy Atkins has no doubts!

Vinho Verde is my go-to picnic wine: white, crisp and refreshing, often tingling with a light spritz, easy-going and inexpensive. That adds up to a great pour with salads, cold meats or smoked salmon.

These wines taste youthful and lively, with crisp acidity and a whiff of white blossom
And it can be more than that. It’s well worth experimenting with the premium Vinho Verdes popping up this summer.

This large region of north Portugal produces more diverse wines than you might imagine – whites, reds and sparkling.

Of the whites, look out for some showcasing just one grape, rather than blends of Portuguese varieties.

The loureiro grape gives us floral-scented, elegant, lemony versions; arinto delivers a racy, whistle-clean style; and those made from alvarinho tend to be more complex, a little richer, with no effervescence.
