• Region: Borba - Alentejo - Portugal
  • Denomination: Regional Alentejo Wine
  • Wine: Red
  • Harvest: 2017
  • Grape varieties: 100% Alicante Bouschet
  • Soil: Chalky clay and schist

A variety that has been highly adapted, over tens of years, to the soil and weather conditions in the Borba region, and therefore included in most of the vine populations in the vineyards of the Adega’s members. One of the main blending varieties in the red wines produced by Adega de Borba, it provides important sensory characteristics – balance and structure. The grapes have been selected with strict monitoring of ripening. At the winery, after being manually harvested and carefully transported, the stalks were removed from the grapes and they were fermented in stainless steel presses, with complete maceration, at a controlled temperature of 25ºC, followed by malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats. To achieve greater complexity and a balanced structure, the wine was aged for 9 months in new French oak barrels and around 4 months in the bottle.

A wine with an intense garnet colour. Full aroma of very ripe forest fruits and a menthol freshness. Smooth in flavour, it has volume and a fruity structure with jammy black fruits and firm, toasted tannins that promise longevity for the coming years.

Can be served young or until 6 years. Best served at room temperature (16-17ºC) with red meat, traditional sausages and strongly scented and flavoured cheeses.
