Aluado Alicante Bouschet 2019
They said he was ‘aluado’ (‘loony’) but the ever inventive José Neiva Correia has proved his doubters wrong.
Alicante Bouschet produces some of the world’s deepest coloured wines and is often used to enhance Portugal’s top reds. Here you find it in its pure form thanks to José. A legend of Portuguese wine, he combines generations of tradition with an inquisitive spirit undimmed at 60+ years of age.
Following on from last year’s five Gold medal triumph, José again used grapes from his own historic estate, Quinta de Porto Franco, which dates back to the 12th century and is thought to have the oldest vineyard in Alenquer.
Aluado 2019 is a rich, velvety red, great solo or served with roast meats or a herby casserole.
