Herdade do Mouchão 2015 Mouchão

The flagship wine for Mouchao, with roughly 80% Alicante Bouschet, and a revelation. The grape has been described as having “very few primary aromas, but with age amazing tertiary aromas and flavors,” and while the wine is far enough along that primary aromas would be a matter of the past, it is indeed chock full of expression. Dark, coffied, balsamic, yet energetic, it can take a day or two to really flower after opening, but right from the start justified its price tag. This is the current offering as, like our friends in Rioja, they want the wine to be ready to drink when they release it. Drink it now or save it forever, as the 1954 (for example) is said to be still as fresh as a daisy!

Notes from the Producer: Dark ruby red. It shows a deep and complex aroma, ripe black fruits involved by spices and balsamic notes.
Lively and full bodied, the concentrated palate is balanced with vibrant acidity that support the ripe and juicy tannins. Very long finish that will backbone a good aging potential for years to come.
