Welcome to the 2016 Spring Wine Tasting by Casa Portuguesa in Warsaw!
Spring has sprung – and at Casa Portuguesa, we celebrate it with a toast… and a tasting!
But not just any tasting. We set up a special commented tasting that will help you – through a simple but clear description of each wine – to understand what hides inside the bottle.
From “vinho verde” to fresh whites and fruity reds from different regions in Portugal, we’ve put together a fine selection of wines matching the sunny days ahead – vibrant and full of life.
During the event, we’ll also hand the prizes to the winners of the 4 contests held among those who attended our previous tasting “Bifana at Towarzyska“.
The 2016 Spring Tasting is “by invitation only” but we may hold a surprise for some lucky wine lovers out there. So, if you’d like to attend, don’t hesitate to mark your interest on the Facebook event and…
Next Saturday, we’ll be joining an original tasting of Portuguese favours..
For the first time in Warsaw, you’ll have a chance to try great Portuguese wines together with some of our most delicious street food, staring the famous “bifana” prepared by Chef Miguel Santos Carvalho of Much More Than Food.
Showing a big potencial, Boas Quintas‘ Quinta da Fonte do Ouro Touriga Nacional 2012 scored an impressive 90/100 by Andreas Larsson, who was crowned World’s Best Sommelier in 2007. This is how the wine was described during a blind tasting:
“Quite youthful colour here, still blue-purple core, slightly lighter towards the rim. Quite intense nose here. Ripe dark fruit. Still appearing youthful. Mostly based on the primary fruit; that consists of dark berries, plum, dark cherry. With some spicy notes of liquorice, anise seed. No noticeable oak so far. Very tight palate, not in a negative way, but a very dense palate I should say. It is still youthful, still a presence of tannin, but ripe tannin. With, really, layers of lush dark fruit. Hint of roasted oak, in the background. A lot of spiciness going on, on the finish, with clove, white pepper. The wine has a very good length as well and very nice acidity and freshness. The only thing is that this would need a few more years. I see a big potential in this one, well voila, due to the density, structure and length. It is still youthful and primary, but it is certainly a style that will develop much more complexity in the coming years.”
