Country: Portugal Region: Alentejo
Varietal: 45% Touriga Nacional, 25% Alicante Bouschet, 20% Syrah & 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Colour: Red. Style: Dry
Producer: Casa de Santos
Description:The red wines of the Alentejo are mostly rich ant fruity easy drinkers thanks to its hot climate.They have a large array of permitted grapes to choose from and some of the producers tend to use most of them, which can be confusing to customers.
This wine is quite the bargain.
Tasting note:The wine opens with an attractive savory aroma of ripe dark cherry fruit, followed by some spice, vanilla and a little dark chocolate.I would say that this is a medium bodied wine with a great concentration of ripe fruits very much like a Beaujolais.
Bring this on a picnic.
It wouldn't be wrong to chill this on a Summers day.
