Dom Rafael Tinto Herdade Do Mouchao Alentejo 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Although nominally a second wine, Dom Rafael is of very high quality, more<br/>approachable than its more tannic sibling (Mouchao) but not without<br/>concentration and real complexity. The majority of the grapes, all of which are<br/>indigenous and relatively unknown, are trodden by foot in old granitic lagares.<br/> <br/> <br/>They are then assembled and matured for over a year in large wooden vats before<br/>release. Both the diligence of the winemaking and the individuality of the<br/>grape varieties are evidenced in the 2008, a terrific and concentrated wine,<br/>with supple tannins, red and black fruits and a satisfying long and spicy<br/>finish <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
