30% Syrah, 30% Alicante Bouchet, 24% Petit Verdot, Afrocheiro 14% and Touriga Nacional 3%.
Made from selected old vine grapes grown at the higher altitudes of the Alto Alentejo. Small tank fermentation with prolonged maceration resulted in wines from the above varieties being selected for their quality for 22 months barrel aging resulting in a rich and complex wine typical of the this special region of Portugal.
Aroma. Ripe soft red fruit, violets with tarry/spicy notes. Palate Layers of ripe fruit, good acidity and structure. Great volume with integrated oak followed by a soft, prolonged finish.
An intriguing combination of one of Italy's most successful grape varieties, Pinot Grigio, and one of their lesser known gems from the island of Sicily, Catarratto. Sweet ripe fruit flavours, citrus and golden plum, are combined with the natural spice of the Catarratto.
Who would have thought that Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc would make such good bedfellows? Anyone who has tried this wine, that's who. It turns out that the peachy stone fruit flavours of the Viognier are the perfect complement to zesty gooseberry Sauvignon flavours.Domaine de la Bastide
