Portuguese Alicante Bouschet

Alicante Bouschet is a distinctive grape, known as a ‘teinturier’, which means it has both red skin and red flesh, unlike most wine grapes which have clear flesh. In Portugal, it has found a welcoming home in the warm Alentejo region. The wines from Alicante Bouschet are full-bodied, deep, almost opaque in colour, and packed with intense flavours of dark fruits such as blackberries and plums, often accompanied by notes of spice and cocoa. With a robust tannic structure and a long finish, Alicante Bouschet wines are ideal for ageing, where they can develop further complexity.
