2012 Mouchão red 1.5L
It is the most emblematic wine of Herdade do Mouchão. It is designed based on the Alicante Bouschet grape variety, which is found in Herdade do Mouchão a terroir of choice and which gives it a unique character. The blending of this variety complemented with Trincadeira gives it a greater exoticism and elegance. After fermentation in stone presses, the wine ages for 24 months in 5000 litre Portuguese oak barrels, macacaúba, and mahogany, and then for a further 24 to 36 months in the bottle. Mouchão has a deep, concentrated colour, a spicy character and its unique tannic structure promotes long bottle ageing.
