Mouchao Red 2009

Mouchao Red 2007

If there’s a red grape which really excites me from Alentejo it’s Alicante Bouschet. The masters of the genre? Without question, Herdade do Mouchão. A lift of sappy eucalypt to its richly-scented, vinous nose and palate which reveals kid glove leather, violets, warm earth and intense cherry, bilberry and damson fruit.
