It is believed that the Rooster ("Galo") is a symbol of good communication since it announces the sunrise day after day. In some cultures it is even associated to positivism and courage and simultaneously to sense of pride due to its elegant and vain pose. These wine comes from a region characterized by its smooth and sunny slopes and the proximity to the ocean. This wine was made from the varieties Castelão, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Trincadeira, and shows a beautiful ruby colour and aromatic notes of red fruits. It benefited from an ageing period in oak barrels, presenting flavours of wild fruits and spices. With good structure, this is a balanced and elegant wine that offers a long and fruity finish.

Lush, fruity flavour. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Glad I took note of the other reviews, this wine doesn't disappoint in its quality. I also like the cheery label! Will buy as long as Iceland keep in stock.

What a great wine. On coming back to this after 2 years I can attest to continuity of quality and taste. On the nose I found burnt candy, vanilla, red berries and liquorice. Very pleasant. Forgiving on the palate and very drinkable. Be aware this does not taste like a 13% wine and is very deceptive. It packs a punch. If Iceland are reading, please keep in stock. As an aside, the bottle and label are totally charming as a decorative piece.

Will definitely buy again. Really very pleasant red for the price. Had it without food, but it would have been good with a BBQ or something spicy like a curry or tomato based dishes.

Light fruit and deep strength. Interesting combo. Watery lightness and deep punchy hit at the same time.. Wow.!! Due to its lightness it would be good on summer evenings. (if you can wait that long). With the punchy hit, it wouldn't disappoint lovers of strong Spanish full-bodied, (just make sure that you warn them that its light fruitiness masks a punch). This is a quality wine for a good price. Congratulations Iceland for an excellent choice. Glad to see it back in stock. Wasn't available on my last order. Always buy a minimum of 2..

This is what I love in Portugal , fantastic people , tasty wine and amazing food . This wine and Mateus (Mateus not available in Iceland) are my favourite . It’s just sad that in UK is not so much choice in supermarkets , all you can find is France Argentina and Italy .. too bad because Portugal have very good range of wines but I guess will have to wait until my summer holiday :) .

I admit I'm a Californian wine fan but I like to try other wines and I can't remember why I picked on this wine ( could it have been the price.)??? This wine has a nice full body and no nasty kick-back after the first mouthful. I raise my glass to all wine drinkers (whatever colour you like) I will order this again. Please never become a wine snob - Hank

Such a shame its no longer in stock

For the price, I guess this wine is ok. If you compare buying a bottle of wine in a supermarket that is on special there are much much better wines to try out there even at the low cost. Very light for a full bodied wine so if you are after a nice heavy red for a big wineglass give it a miss.

Great value Portuguese red. Typical blend from the are. Good with food or in front of the TV. Fruity, smooth and deep. This will be in my next basket

Absolutely delicious. Easy drinker, full of flavour, deliciously smooth. Unbeatable for the price. Wish I’d known it was this good sooner. Will be in my basket every shop from now on. Disappointed I only bought one bottle!
