Produced by winemaker José Neiva Correia, the DFJ range blends wines from two distinctive but complementary varietals - in this case top Port grapes Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca. Ageing in French oak for five months adds a lovely rich spice to the palate, along with bramble fruit and dark chocolate. If you've yet to savour the delights of Portuguese wines then this is a great place to start. The Port-style fruit goes down a treat with hard cheeses.

Buy this if...you're after a rich, dark red.

Get to grips with Portuguese grapes - bramble, chocolate and spice all in evidence.

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:

"Lisboa is the source of a lot of wines offering a high quality to price ratio, including this red wine made from Portugal’s two most prominent red wine varieties, Tourigas Nacional and Franca. Ageing in French oak has given a savoury plushness on the nose, a touch of cocoa, blueberry and coal dust in a dark and dry character. The ripe and juicy sweetness of the fruit in the mouth is bolstered by plenty of spice and tobacco, and a bitter dark chocolate note, good acidity cutting the sweet fruit and creamy texture. Super, modern Portuguese wine of excellent quality"

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.

Spanish Beef & Chorizo Stew

Spicy, rich stews need a medium bodied red with bright fruit flavours. Try a smooth Portuguese blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca by DFJ Vinhos.

Fromage Fort

A brilliant recipe to use up odds and ends of cheese - your final wine choice will depend slightly on which cheeses you use but plump for a smooth, fruity red or of course a Port, and you won’t be going far wrong. Or, you could always go to the half-way house and try the DFJ Touriga Nacional - Touriga Franca, wine made from the grapes used in Port.

Venison Steak with Redcurrant Sauce

The rare red meat and fruity sauce work brilliantly with rich, dark reds. Go for a well-structured but fruit-driven style which will square up to the robust meat flavours and complement the redcurrant sauce. Try a blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca.
