Premium Red Alicante Bouschet

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Portugal

Region: Tejo

Grapes: Alicante Bouschet

Winery Notes: Deep, intense, purple red color. Impressively seductive blackberry and cassis fruits jam. Spicy palate, rich with intense chocolate and mint flavor and toasty oak tannins.

Vinification: Controlled temperature fermentation in open tanks at 25ºC, with hand plunging, followed by 8 months aging in French oak barrels

Food Pairing: Recommended with roasted meats, game and rich pasta sauces or barbecued steaks and ripe cheeses, or grilled vegetables.

Wine Enthusiast: “This young wine, dense with dark tannins and powerful black fruits, is set for the long haul. With its youthful mix between dryness and fruit, sustained by wood aging, the wine will develop well.”
