We were delighted that our wines were chosen in this challenge.  It's always tremendous to have our hard work recognised.


Cortém Jaen* - award winner - Silver Medal IWC 2011

The grape which gives its name to this wine is better known in the dao region where it is used to mix with Touriga nacional and other varieties. On its own it has a very special flavour and makes a light but distinctive wine with flavours of smoke and chocolate, to enjoy by itself or with food. It can also be drunk well cooled like a rosè, and for this reason we call it our " Tinto Verao" "Summer wine". The belnd is about 80% Jaen 20% Touriga Nacional.

Cortém Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot* - award winner - Bronze Medal IWC 2011

This wine is rich and heavy with the taste of cabernet sauvignon predominating, almost too stron for food we call it our fireside wine! Can be drunk young but will improve with age, First year 2009.

IWC LONDON - Our judges said 'Extracted style, full, trim and lively with green notes'.
