Wine Spectator recently mused that Portugal is “the most exciting wine place on the planet.” And its southern, seaside enclave of Algarve is our pick for the country’s most exciting region – we think you’ll agree after a sip of this fantastic red.

Winemaking talent Diogo Sepúlveda turned his ambitions to the Algarve, wanting to prove the sun-drenched, popular vacation destination could also grow award-winning wines. His Al-Ria (‘at the seaside’) blends heat-worshipping grapes Touriga Nacional and Syrah.

The inaugural vintage hauled in an astounding amount of acclaim, including four golds and the No. 1 spot in a Belgian Top 100 tasting. Decanter also gave it 91 points for its “bags of ripe plum character, smooth tannins and excellent fruit concentration.” And this lush 2017 has already scooped up five medals, including a shiny gold from Berliner Wein Trophy.

Considering the modest price tag, this is seriously unbeatable value. Prompt orders would be wise – this beauty won’t last long.
