50 Great Portuguese Wines tasting: our top 10 - The top 10

This year is the 5th anniversary of the '50 Great Portuguese Wines' tasting. The tasting's organised by ViniPortugal, an association set up in 1997 to boost awareness in the UK of just how good Portuguese wines can be. Every year a chosen wine journalist - this year, the winner of the 2009 Portuguese Wine Writer of the Year Awards Sarah Ahmed - is asked to select 50 great Portuguese wines and present them to the trade in London. Ahmed, who is the founder of online wine site The Wine Detective, last week unveiled an exciting range, many from emerging wineries. Here, we've selected 10 of her chosen wines for you to discover and enjoy.
