It is a truth universally acknowledged that an empty glass is in need of a glug of something delicious and they don't come more swiggable or well priced than the Autocarro 27. Portugal is undoubtedly the epicentre of some of the worlds best value wines and so when we are looking for a bargain we always hunt here first. The 2016 Autocarro is the perfect full bodied wine. Rich and ripe black cherry and plum are layered with an incredibly decadent dark chocolate and coffee undertone and a hint of spice. This is quite simply the style of wine you want to drink


Tasting Notes

A deliciously decadent coffee rich, dark red fruit studded nose that lures you in with this incredible touch of umami. The palate has all of those sweet and dark notes. Rich black plum and sloes are washed with coffee and chocolate and that same umami running through the palate. This is crying out for rich fennel studded charcuterie or a huge hunk of grilled meat.
