Aliança Bairrada Reserva Tinto

Portugal, Bairrada

We were simply bowled over by this wine. With its fine cedary nose and bold black fruit flavours it immediately grabs the attention. There are notes of dark chocolate, a touch of leather and soft spice, all wrapped up in  a grainy tannic structure. Medium bodied and savoury the pleasure is heightened when you look at the price – simply stunning value for money.”

Origin

Aliança hold single estates spread across the wine regions of Portugal, in the likes of Douro, Dão, Bairrada and Alentejo. This particular wine comes from Bairrada, an historic wine region of Portugal with viticulture dating as far back as the 10th century. Like most Portuguese wine regions it receives plenty of hot sunshine, although proximity to the Atlantic results in a climate moderated by ocean currents; this helps to produce balanced wines, perhaps less chunky and heavy than those from inland - in Douro and Dão for example.

Grape Variety

A blend of Baga, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz.

Focus is on elevating the pure fruit character of this wine – so all fermented in stainless steel at cooler than normal temperature (for red). Includes some whole berries which highlights the Baga grapes juicy character. Bottled unoaked.
