"Rich and vibrant, fresh and damsony on the nose, the pure ripe mulberry fruitiness of this three-way Douro blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca, is succulently pure and full-flavoured, a classic modern Douro table red whose terrific value more than justifies the diversion of grapes otherwise destined for port."
The Wine Gang.

"This week?s wine is a seriously fine offering from Portugal at a knock down price. Quite how they manage to produce such high quality in what must be very substantial quantity I do not know. Many of the new breed of table wines from the Douro are pretty eye-wateringly expensive nowadays, but this is a delightful exception. It may not last as long as some of the more expensive examples but it already drinking well. Yet, like any decent Douro red, has a reassuring structural framework, filled in with spicy, ripe, engaging fruit with a whiff of warm minerals about it. No shortage of character and and one to drink at the table rather than without food."
Janis Robinson

"Quinta Do Crasto sits halfway up the valley slopes with breathtaking views in all directions. The property of the Roquette family, it is looked after by brothers Miguel and Tomas. With the assistance of an Australian oenologist, they fashion some very fine wines. The Crasto remains one of the best value wines from the region. It has lovely rich, ripe cherry and redcurrants, with a liveliness, a light spiciness and plenty of intensity. A perfect warmer for the cold nights ahead."John Wilson , The Irish Times

"Paddy Borthwick is a regular visitor to Ireland, and a firm favourite with Wines Direct customers and staff for two reasons: his wines are excellent, and he is a charming,easy-going guy who is great company. Paddy is a maverick whose experience in the vineyards of France and Switzerland has made him into one of New Zealand's most talented winemakers. His fantastic 25 ha estate is located in Martinborough (Wairarapa),the fine food capital of New Zealand, and it fits perfectly in this region of fantastic flavour. Like all the best winemakers, he makes wine instinctively and has the confidence to takerisks where others hedge their bets. With the 2011 harvest, for example, which followed acooler and wetter than usual summer, it was this confidence and experience which allowed him to wait a bit longer than other growers in the area, let the rains pass, and pick beautiful, ripe, flavoursome grapes."
