Drink what? Drink me! - 87p
Autumn has arrived and the cool wind has made us all want to open a bottle of red. Which should we choose? We have decided to go for a Portuguese wine this week, with a very appealing name - Drink Me!
For most of us the Niepoort winery is famous for its Port wines and rightly so, but they make other wines as well and the Drink Me wine comes with a fine philosophy - Nat Cool - that means naturally “cool and funky”. It represents an innovative concept initiated by Niepoort, in which various producers come together to create light and easy-to-drink wines. In the Bairrada region they have produced the DrinkMe, the first Nat Cool, where they try to showcase a different and elegant side of the Baga grape variety. An incredibly light and accessible wine which just begs to be enjoyed.

Light in color, this has a fruity character, but with more freshness and floral notes. The Baga grape variety and the Bairrada region is new to me so this is a fun discovery. Red fruits, some spice and a mineral undertone on the nose. Fresh, truly enticing and full of precision, this is a wine which is light on its feet and easy to enjoy. It reminds me a bit of Natural wines, burt without the funkiness which i hate. It is an incredibly versatile food partner, I can see this with grilled meats, salads and even some spicy dishes. Serve chilled.
