Portuguese Alfrocheiro is a red wine grape variety native to Portugal, primarily grown in the Dão region. It’s known for its deep colour and intense aroma. This grape produces wines with high acidity and soft tannins that can age well. The aromatic profile of Alfrocheiro wines typically features red fruit flavours such as strawberries and raspberries, intertwined with subtle floral notes and occasional hints of spice. Alfrocheiro is often used in blends with other native Portuguese grapes, but varietal wines offer a unique expression of this lesser-known, yet compelling grape variety.
