Tasting Notes

Dom Rafael Tinto has an intriguing expression of black fruits, ripe fruits with spices, and liquorice in the background. Rich and elegant attack, with notes of black berries, mellow tannins, great complexity, and a long spicy finish.

Portugal

Alentejo

Alentejo wine region covers about a third of Portugal located eastern of Lisbon. This well-known wine region is highly respected in Portugal for its red wines. The region has eight sub-regions but most of the production is sold under Alentejo DOC title. These wines are often made from Aragonez (Tempranillo), Castelao, or Trincadeira.

Herdade Do Mouchao

Moderate mountain climate

Herdade do Mouchao

The soils in Alentejo can easily be divided into two sub-regions. Portalegre lies to the north east on the granite foothills of the São Mamede mountains, with cooler temperatures, giving complexity and freshness to the wines. Conditions are more challenging in the south part of Alentejo, with poor, limestone-based soils and a significantly hotter climate. Here, a new generation of producers has shown the potential of the terroirs around Vidigueria.
