Mouchao , 6 x 75cl

Mouchao , 6 x 75cl

Flagship wine from historic Alentejo wine estate - Mouchao. It is widely considered to be one of the very best Alentejo wines and a superb example of what great wines Alicante Bouschet can produce.

In the vineyards, modern techniques, such as spray irrigation to ensure frost protection, are employed, whilst in the winery traditional techniques are adhered to - the grapes are delivered down wooden chutes into large open stone lagares where they are foot troden then lightly pressed in century old wooden baskets. The wine is run off into large 5000L wooden vats for minimum of 3 years. Once bottled the wine is matured for a further 2-3 years before release.

A wine with intense garnet colour and aromas of black fruit jam, herbacious and spices. Its distinct structure has clear freshness and solid tannins that guarantee its longevity. Ready to drink (open a day or 12 hours ahead to allow breathing time), and typically cellars well for a further 15+ years.  If drinking in the next 3 - 5 years decant wine or open a day or 12 hours ahead to allow wine to breathe. Best paired with slow roast red meats, hearty casseroles and game.
