Portugal / Alentejo
Andy's Tasting Notes
A wine legend in Portugal. This historic estate specialises in the Alicante Bouschet grape which from the estate’s old vines produces a wine of immense structure and depth, counterbalanced by innate freshness and minerality.
The superb 2013 shows blackberry, pomegranate, blueberry, liquorice, mint and cedar. Fragrant and aromatic, it’s a wine to swirl in your glass as the aromas develop.
Drink from 2022 and till 2030. Enjoy with hearty fayre.

In a country steeped in winemaking history, the name Mouchão is synonymous with wines of distinction. The family owned estate has been producing wine for over a hundred years and maintains the traditions established in 1901 when the winery was built.
The distinctive character of Mouchão wines derives from three principal characteristics: the Alicante Bouschet grape, the specific terroir and adherence to traditional winemaking methods. At Mouchão grapes are hand-picked, foot trodden in marble cement lining lagares and the wine aged in five thousand litre vats.
Mouchão wines are renowned for their longevity, maturing subtly as they age.
