This region lies in southern Portugal, known mostly for its extracted, rich wines. The climate is continental with blazing hot summers and cold winters. 
 
Alentejo is known for its reds wines that come in two distinct styles: Some producers favor the more traditional Portuguese style of using blends of indigenous grapes, picking fruit at pinpoint ripeness and creating wines with earthy, robust, complexity that can be quite ageworthy. Other wine-makers are taking a more “new world” modern approach, favoring more ripened fruit and jammy, intense wine. It’s the latter style that has brought the most recent attention to the region. 
 
The main red grapes grown in Alentejo are Aragonez (Tempranillo in Spain), Trincadeira, Moreto and Castelao, with some winemakers adding Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. A small amount of white is produced from Arinto, Perrum, Fernao Pires and Roupeiro. It is divided into the following subregions:

  • Monte da Cal Alentejo 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A very direct note of sweet, toasty oak almost wrapped in sweet black fruit; but this is just a spice rack on the nose with nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and dried ginger galore. There is a nice bed of black raspberry fruit lurking under the surface. With air, the spice does dissipate revealing more fruit with an attractive leathery edge. In the m... Read More

  • Paulo Laureano Red Blend Alentejo Reserva 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This Portuguese white reserva possesses an interesting and complex aroma of tropical fruit, tangerine and spices. fresh and fruity upfront, followed by a buttery and velvety finish. I enjoyed this with a light pasta primavera but it was suggested to accompany full flavored fish dishes, poultry, and most pork dishes. Read More

  • Vinha da Defesa Rosé 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I tried this wine based on the review from Wine Enthusiast, 11.2008 in which they gave this 85 Points: With its grey/pink color, aromas of cherry and raspberry and its fresh fruity flavor, this is a great aperitif rose. The taste shows some caramel and sweetness, crispened with acidity. Wine Enthusiast, 11.2008 I enjoyed this with sushi b... Read More
