Smart Dog Trincadeira/Syrah, Alentejo, J P Ramos 2018
Why? Soft, savoury, lovely fruity raspberry feel on the palate - best of all you can sit back, relax and tell everybody you're just walking the dog… Robert Boutflower
*Winner of the International Wine Challenge Bronze Award*
João Portugal Ramos is at the forefront of the modern Portuguese revolution. We can see why, with this fragrant creation of lavender, chocolate and spice box, with a fruit-filled palate and ripe tannins.

The comedy label does little to convince one that the wine inside this bottle is anything other than a simple soul, but this is not so. In fact, this wine is a rather accurate and honest interpretation of its wild Alentejo countryside. Rich and smooth with fruit notes drenched in earth and spice, this is a great wine with the Pork skewers with light salsa verde.
