A colouring grape, perhaps the most Portuguese amongst foreign grapes, Alicante Bouschet produces intense, deeply colored wines. It wasn’t born here but one may find it in Alentejo, sometimes in over 100-years old vines.
Commonly mixed with other grapes, Alicante adds volume, structure and resistance to the test of time.
Aromas: Wild berries, cocoa, olives.
Pairings: Roasts, Red meats.
