 Wines of Portugal highlighted in the Top 100 of Wine Enthusiast magazine
Six Portuguese wines were distinguished on the Top 100 of one of the most prestigious wine magazines in the world
José Maria da Fonseca 2016 reached the 11th place and is the best rated Portuguese wine on the list. Wine Enthusiast considers “this rich, full wine is firmly anchored in ripe tannins. It has concentration and a dense texture, layered with black fruits and acidity. Partly fermented in clay amphoras, the wine has a particularly juicy edge.”

This year, Wine Enthusiast’s tasting panel reviewed more than 24,000 wines from around the globe, exploring a multitude of regions, styles and price points. This yearly roundup of the best-of-the-best showcases the incredible diversity of high-scoring wines on the market. Each was chosen for a myriad of reasons, including high quality-to-price ratios, good market availability, and an x-factor that can’t be precisely defined.
