Mouchao, Tinto, Alentajo

Contains Sulphites.

Appellation: Portugal

Whilst you may think almost exclusively of Port when you think of wines from Portugal there's actually there’s plenty more on offer. Rich reds, adventurous whites and a sweet wine here and there can all be found coming out of this wonderful country.

Grape Type: Touriga Nacional

Touriga Nacional is best known as forming the back-bone to the very best Port. However, it is increasingly used for dry reds, not only in the Douro Valley but in regions such as Ribatejo. The single varietal Touriga Nacional, when blended with other indigenous or international varieties from Quinta do Alqueve, demonstrates how far Portugal has come in producing rich yet elegant wines with immediate appeal but longevity.
