Waitrose Loved and Found Castelao 2019 review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips


The Loved and Found range from Waitrose offers you the chance to try unusual grape varieties that would normally not be named in blended wines made of several grape types, but this time they are out there on their own. So do they stand up to be the star of the show? In this case yes. This Portuguese Castelao makes a fragrant and fruity red with flavours of damson and cherry liqueur chocolates with a cinnamon spice edge. There’s also a rich raisin ending – but for all that the wine still tastes light and refreshing. A nice wine to try.
