Tasting Notes

Violet and plum aromas, very fruity with a hint of mixed spice and vanilla mocha. Palate is full of lush sweet dark berry fruit; quite stewed in nature. Slight sweet and ripe up front. Nicely balanced and quite interesting mid palate. Fruit and spice, almost a little porty in flavour.

Producer details

English wine writer Richard Mayson has been specialising in Portuguese wines for over twenty years and is the author of five books on the subject. As early as 1989, he identified the Portalegre sub-region of the Alentejo as potentially one of the leading wine regions in Portugal due to its altitude, soils and climate. He now produces three different premium red wines, each from a blend of grape varieties, reflecting the terroir of the region. His emphasis is on producing wines with balance, finesse and poise.

In the winery

Aged in new and second year wood for around 1 year to 18 months before bottling.

Food Recommendations

Anchovies; Pork Fillet Stuffed with Prunes; Cheese Platter.

In the press

‘…red, dark, rich and intense with dense, stony tannins, real mountain wine.’ Charles Metcalfe in The Wine and Food Lover’s Guide to Portugal
