Made from varieties traditionally used in port, this juicy Portuguese red shows how well the grapes work in dry wines, too.
What You Need To Know
Portugal’s terrific dry wines are only just starting to gain the recognition that they deserve. Native grapes, adapted to the country over millennia and long used to make port, are creating exciting table wines from all over the country, not just the port stronghold of the Douro Valley. Case in point: this succulent, cherry-driven red from the Alentejo, an up-and-coming region in southeast Portugal that’s becoming known for fruity, intense reds. Casa Agrícola HMR was established in 1987 on land farmed for grapes since Roman times. Its entrylevel Varal blend is unusually fresh and juicy for Alentejo, and exactly what makes the wine so food-friendly and gulpable.
