Tasting Notes

Our Portuguese find of a couple of years ago, Quinta da Alorna, is a terrific red from the lovely Touriga Nacional grape. We have been on the hunt for great quality, value wines from Portugal made from indigenous varieties that capture the essence of this country, for some time! and here it is! It has become a firm favourite with our customers.

Quinta da Alorna arrests your senses with aromas of summer red fruits; raspberry, cherry combine with plum to provide deliciously rich and savoury aromas with hints of cinnamon spice and light cedary oak. These follow through to the layered flavours of plums and black fruits together with hints of chocolate and it’s all wrapped up in an elegant, well-balanced and long finish. With its fine, well-integrated tannins, this is a fresh and elegant red at a great price.

About the producer

This wine is made by Quinta da Alorna, a family-run estate with 160 hectares of vineyards, 500 hectares of agriculture and 1950 hectares of forests, including cork oak. Tejo was formally called Ribatejo, the vineyards are located on the South bank of the Tagus River which strongly influences the grape-growing, providing a fresh profile to the wines. This wine is made from a single varietal from specific vineyard parcels.

How the wine is made

The family farm in a sustainable way, they hand-pick and hand-select the grapes, and after a malolactic fermentation the wine was aged in second use American oak barrels for 6 months. We believe this wine represents good value

Food match: Excellent with Italian (and Portuguese) cuisine, duck and cheeses.
