Press Note:

'On its first showing, at the Out the Box tasting, I found it long – fresh and persistent – if a touch raw, with a red apple skin note. The following week at the Swig Portfolio tasting, the fruit had really come up – bright plum, black cherry and berry – very juicy. Nice detail, with its violet lift and dusty schist undertones. Good. Like all Portugal Boutique Winery’s reds, it was fermented in lagares. Whilst the first vintage of Boina was unoaked, this wine saw just 5% (two year old) French oak for 12 months. For Olazabal Ferreira, a little oak for complexity is a good thing and, going forward, the plan is to use a little more (10-20% in 2017). Plus, he added, “people don’t understand wines only with stainless steel…a shame.”' Sarah Ahmed on the 2015
