Quick Overview

A complex, ruby-red wine that has hints of violet and eucalyptus which give way to chocolate, spice and white pepper in the mouth. This is a big wine that stands up well to grilled local meats. Fermentation in American Oak, followed by 12 months aging in French oak, give this wine finesse, with silky tannins and a full mouth-feel. Made from the finest Syrah & Touriga Nacional grown on the Estate, a mere 7000 bottles of this high octane red are produced every year.

Details

Herdade dos Grous was established first as a luxury tourist resort, with a small boutique hotel and a 90-hectare lakesharing the landscape with olive trees, mint, cows, sheep and pigs that feed on acorns from cork trees and eventually make the famous ‘pata negra’ hams. The owners planted their first grapes in 2002 and now have vineyards stretching across 70 hectares of the estate, cultivating a wide variety of local and international grape varieties. The white schist soil houses Aragonês (Grenache), Touriga Nacional, Tinta Miuda (Graciano), Alicante Bouschet, Tempranillo, Syrah, Nebiollo and Sangiovese varieties, whilst the white grapes include Antão Vaz, Arinto, Roupeiro, Verdelho, Viognier, Vermentino and Semillion.

At the hands of winemakers, Pedro Ribeiro and Luis Duarte (who is responsible for some of the finest wines to come from the Alentejo) this landscape yields some of the richest, most complex wines to come from this part of the country. The challenges of producing wine in such a climate are not new to Pedro, who spent a number of years making wine in Australia’s Barossa Valley, before returning to his homeland to try his hand at producing elegant, refined wines from the dry, hot land.
