Congratulations to Jorge Borges and Sandra Tavares: their new Douro white wine, Guru 2004, won the white wine trophy at the International Wine Challenge 2006. The results were announced last night at the official IWC dinner. Good news for Portugal and the Douro.
Guru 2004 Wine & Soul
This is a subtle, understated, elegant and beautifully-made wine which demonstrates that Portugal can make brilliant, dry white wine to rival some of the world’s greatest. This is a wine made from Portuguese varieties, not the usual ‘international’ suspects. UK Stockists – C&D Wines £17.00. This wine has also won the James Rogers Trophy."
Congratulations are also due to Jorge and Sandra on the birth of their first child, a boy, on July 27th. And today they were pressing the Guru 2006.
