2010 Porta Velha, Valle Pradinhos, Trás-os-Montes

( £7.50, 13%, The Wine Society )

If you’re looking for a glass of something unusual, yet also uncomplicated, this is for you. It’s a gloriously juicy Portuguese red with bright bramble and raspberry flavours, a smidgeon of tannin and enough acidity to slice its way through lamb or pork. Great value.
