This smooth, seductive Pinot Noir hails from the Lisboa region in Portugal, from the vineyards of DFJ Vinhos and the winemaking skill of Jose Neiva Correia. The wine is aged for 6-9 months in a mixture of American, French and Portuguese oak, lending notes of exotic spice, dried fruit and blackberry. You'll taste sweet spice and forest fruits with a soft, luscious finish. Try this with game birds or lighter red meats or the rich flavours of Portuguese salt cod.

Ripe and fruity Pinot Noir from Portugal's No 1 winemaker.

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.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"Well who'd have thought it? Pinot Noir from Portugal is highly unusual, this from Lisboa (formerly known as Estremadura), aged in a combination of French, American and Portuguese oak barrels. For Pinot lovers the search for affordable versions is always on, and this is a good little wine for its price: briarwood, roasted chestnut and some autumnal, woodland aromas join the red fruits, and the palate has juiciness and good balance."

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 planted in cooler vineyards nearer the ocean and 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.

A Pinot Noir - for those who don't like Pinot Noir

I was introduced to this wine at a Rude Wines event - my preference is generally for stronger reds than Pinot typically produce. The oak aging that this Paxis wine underwent gave it a much fuller, fruitier flavour. Happy to recommend and onto my second order.

Portuguese Salt Cod

The robust flavour of salt cod with spicy piri piri can stand up to a red wine such as a Pinot Noir. So there's no need to match this white fish with a white wine on this occasion - try the fruity, balanced Paxis with soft tannins to stand up to the rich fish and vibrant seasoning.

Mushroom & Gruyère Bruschetta

Musky, earthy mushrooms and nutty cheese are a perfect match with light, ripe reds - Portuguese Pinot Noir are particularly good.

Charcuterie Board

Cured meats match perfectly with light reds with a hint of sweetness, with the fresh, juicy fruit in the wine contrasting with the smoked/salty flavours in the meats. The Paxis Pinot Noir is a glorious match that will not disappoint.
