Top 10 wines in the UK press

2010 Arenae, Malvasia de Colares

ArenaeBrian Elliott, in The Scotsman, recommends this wine which, he wrote: “originates from a windy, sandy, coastal area where vines have to be planted in deep trenches.”

He added: “The wine itself has the salty and nutty flavours of sherry (but with a mere 12% alcohol) along with a savoury backdrop rather like soda bread. Those characteristics, however, are wrapped in unexpectedly fresh and smooth layers of apple and lemon.”
