Tasting notes: Intense berry and baked fruit aromas with spice and appealingly rustic notes. Vibrant plum and black cherry on the palate with liquorice hints, robust tannins, and finely poised acidity.
Food match: “From Touriga Nacional to Trincadeira, the sweet buttery flavour and texture of lamb is a thing of beauty paired with a red of class, poise, balance and subtle fragrance.” Olly Smith - so drink with your classic Sunday roast lamb!

About Aliança Vinhos de Portugal :
"One of Portugal's largest and most progressive producers with 600 hectares spread across estates in five regions from the 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 the 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."
