Tasting note Herdade do Mouchão Alentejo Tinto
Intense red wine with a beautiful aroma of fine herbs, aged red fruit and oak. The taste structure is full, powerful and balanced; the finish is long, complex and persistent.
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 it used to be. The hand-picked grapes are still pressed in lagares, large open fermentation tanks, with the feet and then slowly fermented. The top wine Mouchão has international recognition as one of the very best Portuguese wines and is made from mainly alicante bouschet (70%) and trincadeira. After fermentation, Mouchão matures in large wooden barrels for between 24 and 36 months, 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 pouring it in a decanter. Mouchão advises to serve the wine at about 17ºC.
