Warm and spicy aromas, rich, ripe and generous with dark fruit, and a hint of savoury olives and mixed berries. Generous and smooth with tannins that are present, but softened by the maturation time. Beautifully fresh with great balance and super length.

Additional Information: Mouchao estate red from the terrific 2013 vintage is from Alicante Bouschet and Trincadeira. Traditionally foot trodden and fermented in lagares, 2-3 years in large wooden vats and then 2-3 years in bottle before release.

An expressive, relatively forward Mouchão with the sweetness, smoothness and fluidity associated with this charming vintage. Its juicy blackberry, blackcurrant and plum fruit is supported by chalky tannins and balanced acidity. Complexing nuances of tobacco, tar and orange peel rise in the glass. On day two, riper blueberry, dried fig, mint tea and earthy, leafy, mulchy undertones emerge and the tannins seem grainer, more mineral. All the hallmarks of Mouchão it’s pretty approachable and delivering pleasure now.
