Segredos de São Miguel, Tinto

€11.99

Cracking value from the region that ceases to give: Alentejo. This is another wine that is the brain-child of legendary winemaker Luis Duarte, who is involved in Herdade dos Grous and Monte da Peceguina.

It is full of dark fruits, lively spicey smoothness and a medium bodied, dry finish. Blackberry, licorice and plum flavours are balanced by fresh acidity and smooth tannins. A gorgeous glass for any night of the week.

The Relvas family began their now highly successful and extensive wine group at this estate, the Herdade do São Miguel. They make gorgeous wines with the reds catching the eye of many a keen bargain hunter on account of the fruit density, oak quality and overall precision of the wines that they offer. They are really very good and use nothing out of the ordinary, this Segredos being made from the proprietary blend of Touriga Nacional, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicante Bouschet. The telling quality comes in the execution - never overly ambitious and yet mean! This could fetch a higher price I know it, but they cut their cloth and so on... This Segredos is their pre-entry level if you like: specifically designed to offer you (and me) a 'key' into the style and quality of the Alentejo.

For many years now, this has been one of the go-to recommendations we have worked with for customers looking to understand what all the fuss about Portugal really is, and how to access that at less than the price of a meal for two.

If that's you, then this is the wine for you!

Amazing service from the get go!
I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!

★★★★★
Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
