Herdade de Mouchão Vinho Licoroso 2009

A bottle of Herdade de Mouchão Vinho Licoroso 2009 accompanied by stunning views from Marvão, as the sun goes down. Made using the same method as Port, with the grapes trodden by foot in traditional stone lagars. 100% Alicante Bouschet, a red-fleshed ‘Teinturier’ variety, the wine is black as treacle, thick in the mouth, all its sweet currant flavours balanced by smoky, herby, eucalyptus characters.
