The Mouchão red wine
Intense red wine with a beautiful aroma of fine herbs, ripened red fruit and oak. The flavor structure is full, powerful and balanced; the aftertaste long, complex and persistent.
The Portuguese of the Reynolds family
Mouchaõ is one of the great classics in the Portuguese wine world. A 38-hectare wine estate, owned by the Reynolds family since 1901, where time stood still and was only connected to electricity in 1991. Here wine is made without haste, as in the old days. The hand-picked grapes are still pressed with their feet in lagares, large open fermenters, and then slowly fermented. The top wine Mouchão has international recognition as one of the very best Portuguese wines and is made mainly from alicante bouschet (70%) and trincadeira. After fermentation, Mouchão matures between 24 and 36 months in large wooden barrels, depending on the quality of the harvest. This is an impressive red wine that comes into its own when you aerate the wine well before serving in a decanter. Mouchão advises to serve the wine at about 17ºC.
