DFJ Vinhos Grand Arte Alicante Bouschet

The wine is almost black in colour, with intense fruit aromas of matured blackberries and black pepper.

Title
£15.95

Known for its fruity, vibrant red colour, Alicante Bouschet makes an intense and full-bodied wine. Using classic fermentation methods and pre fermentative skin contact, the wine is almost black in colour, with intense fruit aromas of matured blackberries and black pepper. The wine is full bodied, powerful, deep structured but smooth and velvety, helped by a 3-month ageing period in 225L French Oak barrels. The overall end product is elegant, shows complexity and has a long and intense finish.

The Vinho Regional Lisboa (previously known as Estremadura) extends north and west of Lisbon, following the rugged Atlantic coastline. It is Portugal`s third largest wine producing region in volume terms, but arguably the source of the country`s best value table wines. Most of the region enjoys a maritime climate that allows production of fresh whites and balanced red wines. The last ten years have seen a surge of ambitious small growers making far more interesting wines across a wide selection of grape varietals.
