Made by renowned winemaker Jose Neiva Correia, who recently won Portugal Producer of the Year at the NYIWC 2015. This is a dark red, rich and full bodied wine with lovely ripe blackcurrant aromas. The palate is soft and velvety with good acidity which gives the wine a lovely freshness. Exclusive to Rude Wines.

Buy this if...you love Port flavours but without the sweetness.


'A rich black fruit-scented red with real character. Think pure Cabernet Sauvignon and you will be near.'
Stephen Barrett, Plymouth Herald, March 2016.

The Producer

Founded by winemaking legend José Neiva Correia in 1998, DJF Vinhos is located in the Lisboa region which stretches north along the coast from the capital Lisbon. A simple philosophy with an ambitious aim: to transform the rich and diverse Portuguese varieties into top quality wines that are accessible to all. Quality and value for money are key, and the estate even buys in used oak barrels and employ two coopers to take them apart and strip them back to the new wood – as good as new for a fraction of the price! DJF is not short of fans, with more awards than any other Portuguese producer of the last 20 years, including red wine of the year at the IWC and twice Portuguese Winery of the Year in the New York Wine Competition since 2012.

The Winemaker

José’s winemaking CV is as impressive as the wines themselves. With both his mothers and fathers' families involved in winemaking, José and his seven brothers and sisters grew up on the Quinta de Porto Francos estate, now part of the DJF estate and one of the oldest in the region. With nearly 40 years’ experience in winemaking under his belt, José honed his skills at co-operative wineries and as a consultant to independent producers all over Europe.
In the words of Tim Atkin MW: “José deserves great credit for his contribution to the transformation of Portuguese wine. He is equally adept at making top end wines as he is producing inexpensive mass market blends, using international and local grapes with considerable skill. The Portuguese wine revolution wouldn't have happened without him.“


The Region

Sunshine is not in short supply in this picturesque region of rolling hills, yet cooling Atlantic breezes allow for a long, slow ripening period for the grapes which lends a fresh, elegant touch to the wines. A total of seventeen grape varieties are grown across a wide area with white varieties are planted in cooler vineyards nearer the ocean, red varieties in warmer vineyards further inland. Extensive research is always on the cards, and José is credited with the introduction of several new varietals to the region including Albarino, Pinot Noir and more recently Dornfelder.

Veal with Creamy Mushrooms

Veal can pair well with soft, light reds or more full bodied whites - we'd suggest a fresh red with soft fruit flavours that doesn't overpower the delicate meat and creamy sauce.

Baked Stuffed Aubergine with Walnut & Roquefort

With a lot of strong, rich flavours in this baked dish, you need to match the salty cheese with acidic tomato, savoury aubergine and nuts. Try a medium bodied red with enough fruit flavour to contrast with the saltiness in the cheese.

Roast Pheasant with Lemon & Rosemary

Contrast the delicate savoury flavours in this dish with a light to medium-bodied red with good fruit intensity. You don’t want to go for overly tannic styles which will overpower the meat so stick to soft, supple styles such as New World Merlots or lighter European reds.
