Juicy, deliciously ready to drink, a fun wine at a great value. This is our most popular wine, boasting a consistent track record. A juicy, ripe, easy drinking wine, bottled early, usually within 6 months of harvest time and without any oak ageing. Best drunk young, but will improve with short term cellaring. Mainly Aragonez and Syrah, blended with other Portuguese varieties. The name Chaminé originates from one of our vineyard plots – ‘Chaminé de Gião’, where originally the grapes used in the wine were grown.
Spicy, dark berry fruit aromas, of cherry and blackcurrant, and some earthy and smoky notes. The palate is solid and juicy with a good balance.

There are plenty of chocolate overtones to this spicy red, which features flavors of dark plum, boysenberry and dried blackberry. Shows hints of brown sugar midpalate, with a finish that is open-textured, accented by smoky notes. Aragonez and Syrah. Drink now through 2018. 100,000 cases made.–KM
