Lobo e Falcão 2017
Portugal's stunning 'Wolf & Falcon' ... from a royal 17th century estate!
Head to the remote interior of Portugal and you're in a land seemingly untouched by modern times - and largely overlooked by the rest of the wine world. But we've been swooping in on its rich pickings for years, winning 'Portugal Retailer of the Year' with remarkable wines at great value prices. Here's our juiciest find yet, made by Jose Lobo de Vasconcelos (Lobo is Portuguese for wolf) at a 17th century estate in central Portugal that was once the king's falconry. Jose's ancestors kept special barrels of their wine for the king when he visited - and today he makes this red specially for our customers. The wine's satisfying richness, spicy, dark fruit and creamy layer of oak make it a top choice for slow cooked beef or mixed game casserole.
