Luis Vieira Alentejo Red 2021
Sorry, this wine is available exclusively to the Angels who helped make it happen. To find out more about becoming an Angel, click here.
If you’ve never heard of Alentejo before, that’s because the natives like to drink most of its wine themselves. The exceptional quality of its kit makes them a staple in up-market Portuguese bars and restaurants, so most of it gets gobbled up by the locals.
It’s a blend you might not have tasted before, of 60% Alfrocheiro, a native Portuguese grape, 30% Alicante Bouschet, and 10% Touriga Franca, which despite the name also has a good old Portuguese lineage. The palate has a lovely soft and smooth texture. We are talking moreish, easy-drinking heaven, from the master of Portuguese reds.
Angel backing over the years meant that in 2020 Luis could build a new high-tech, sustainable winery in Alentejo from scratch. Now he’s there on the ground for good, he can share the magic of this region with us every year. At £8.99 a bottle, his first Alentejo red should fly out the door.
