Mouchão Colheitas Antigas Red Wine 2003

Grape varieties: Alicante Bouschet (over 70%) and Trincadeira.

Production method: One of the distinguishing characteristics of Mouchão is its ageing capacity. To highlight this, a small quantity of bottles are held back and released under the “Colheitas Antigas” label on the 10th year of its vintage.

Climate: Mediterranean with cold winters, rainfall concentrated between October to February (with an average annual rainfall of 700mm) and hot summers with temperatures reading 40ºC at the time of maturation.

Soil: A mediterranean mix of clay and sand; poor to average quality.

Tasting notes:
Colour: A wine of intense garnet colour.
Flavour: With walnut flavours and an aroma with hints of mint and eucalyptus, dark fruit jam and spices. 
Palate: On the palate, the wine is well balanced. Its structure is marked with a pleasant acidity which blends into a long, elegant finish, based on a large concentration of silky tannins.

Serving suggestions: We recommend that this wine be served at 16/17 ºC and decanted prior to serving. It is best enjoyed with roasts, game and rich casserole dishes.
