Hansenand Magasin, Department Store in the inner city In both years, the wine is beautiful, fruity and delicious â€“ one is not in doubt that care and money has been spent on this wine. It fills the mouth with lovely fruits and soft tannic acid, but when choosing between the two, we would recommend the year 2004 and let the younger wine age another year. In any circumstances, they are wines that require to be accompanied by food. The fruit is Aragonez (80%) and Syrah.

Sir Cliffâ€™s friends, father and son Last Sunday, Cliff Richard performed in Forum in Copenhagen and already Monday he was on his way to Paris. But his wine stayed in Denmark, and at a wine tasting at H.J. Hansen, we met Nigel og Max Birch with whom the noble pop singer makes his wine.
As early as 1978, the British Nigel Birch and his wife, Lesley, bought a farm at Albufeira near the Portuguese Algarve-coast with the purpose of growing avocados. Later Sir Cliff bought an estate in the same area and when he wanted to make a little wine for himself and his friends he started growing wine. However, he must have overestimated his own consumption and the number of his friends because the first year it amounted to 20,000 bottles. Nigel Birch and his son Max who is the oenologist helped him grow the wine. In 2002, they all threw together their vineyards, a total of 12 acres, and established a small winehouse. The wine from this conglomeration between the Birch familyâ€™s Quinta do Miradouro and Sir Cliffâ€™s Adega do Cantor (the wine cellar of the singer) they called Vida Nova (new life)
VIDA NOVA Tinto (red wine) got a Gold medal by wine tasting test, with Tim Vollerslev â€“ Manager & Chief Sommelier SAS Radison Scandinavia.
