The Details

In a Nutshell

A full-flavoured, spicy red with ripe bramble fruits - an excellent winter warmer.

Tasting Notes

An open fruity nose, with ripe cherry and plum characters. Similarly ripe and full-flavoured on the palate with blackberry and plum notes. Soft tannins and spice on the finish.

Production Notes

The hand-picked grapes are sourced from selected vineyards in the Dao region south of the Douro Valley, where old vines are tended traditionally in granite soil.

Fermentation in stainless steel vats controlled at 30 degrees with maceration on the skins for 10 days in total. The wine is then matured for 6 months in 300 litre French oak barrels.

Producer - Caves Aliança

One of Portugal’s largest and most progressive producers with 600 hectares spread across estates in five regions from Douro in the north to Alentejo in the south. Winemaker Francisco Antunes oversees what must be one of the most diverse ranges in Europe, from the 3rd largest Portuguese rose brand (Casal Mendes) to some of the country’s most impressive premium reds from estates in Douro, Dao, Bairrada and Alentejo. Arguably, Francisco’s greatest achievements lie between these extremes, a range of mid-priced wines from native varieties, full of character, quite distinctly Portuguese, but at the same time approachable and with fresh, modern fruit.
