Tasting notes Lifted aromas of wild black fruit, offset with some spicy, smoky notes. The palate has black cherry, mocha and some grip - well-balanced by fruit acidity - to give an elegant yet structured wine with a fresh herbal, black fruit finish. Some savoury development on the palate adds complexity.
Food match: Excellent warming winter wine with robust stews and roast meat.

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."
