From: Alentejo, Portugal
Varietals: Trincadeira and Aragonez (Tempranillo) with a touch of Syrah
Tasting Notes: The fruit is sourced for this hand-crafted wine from 1000-foot high schist and limestone vineyards surrounding the J Portugal Ramos Vila Santa winery. Unoaked, it displays fresh black fruit and a plush mouthfeel.
“This rich, wood-aged wine is still young, exhibiting its tannins, black fruits and vibrant acidity. Give it time, though, and this wine will turn into a complex, rich and juicy wine that will exhibit its power and concentration. Drink from 2022.” –Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 92 points
Pairing: Pair with a cold night with slow cooker stews and flavorful braises. Some dishes this wine could easily match are sausage and peppers, herb-roasted lamb, or beef stew. For today's pairing, we're sharing a flavor-packed recipe for Texas Chili by Jennifer Steinhauer.
About. Situated between the Algarve and Lisboa regions, the sunny Alentejo wine region is the largest in the country, spreading across more than 30% of Portugal. Alentejo is comprised of eight subregions, each boasting a wealth of mouth-watering cuisines, excellent wine, and various tourism experiences. From vineyards that stretch as far as the horizon to mountain ranges and beaches, Alentejo has something for everybody.
The red wines that are produced in Alentejoare mostly made by blending several different grapes. Wines made in this manner can be described as wines that are full-bodied, rich in color, with optimal levels of acidity that help strike a good balance of tannin and alcohol. This wine is a blend of predominantly Trincadeira–an indigenous Portuguese variety known for making deep-colored, spicy wines–and Aragonez (also known as Tempranillo), along with a touch of Syrah.
