2013 Mouchao Tonel No. 3-4
It is probably the most emblematic expression of the Alicante Bouschet variety in all its fullness and its great aging potential.
The historic Vinha dos Carapetos is the birthplace of this complex, rich and intense wine, and from where the small and much appreciated dye grapes are harvested.
Tradition is respected through hand-harvesting, treading with feet, fermentation in stone presses, and manual pressing. This wine ages in old chestnut and oak barrels 3 and 4 with macacaúba and mahogany bottoms for 4-5 years, followed by 4 years of additional aging in the bottle in the cellar.
Tasting Note: This strong, full-bodied wine exhibits a captivating garnet colour with aromas and flavours of dark fruit, black olive, mint, and spices. Despite its extraordinary aging potential, it can be enjoyed shortly after its release but likely to peak 15-20 years after the harvest.
Origin: Alentejo, Portugal
Blend: Alicante Bouschet
