Wine information
In 1988, A Danish-American couple, Hans and Carrie Jorgensen set out in a sailboat to find a place to start a family and plant vines. They came to Alentejo and they found “Cortes de Cima.” It was just a barren land and a few abandoned buildings. But Carrie, of Portuguese ancestry, said the landscape reminded her of California, her homeland. Hans, who was born in Denmark, fell in love with the Mediterranean sun. Their first wine was "born" in 1998 and the many successful vintages which followed as well as their pioneering spirit have put Cortes de Cima on the map. Their Chaminé Tinto is one of our favourites at £10 or under. It has a overt nose of fresh cherries, red plum, dark fruits and a lick of black liquorice. It is vibrant and well-rounded on the palate with good acidity and body. There is so much to love about this wine.

Robin says "Chaminé Tinto is produced mainly with Tempranillo (what the Portuguese call Aragonez) and Syrah, a variety that Hans and Carrie literally put on the Alentejo map. A step up in concentration from their Courela Tinto, it offers a welcoming velvety mouthfeel that is still focused on its fruit. Well done and good value for money."
