Vinha Do Mouro Tinto 2009

Father and son Miguel and Luis Louro have brought this ancient vineyard site back to life, and are making some of Portugal’s very finest red wines here. The region is Alentejo, the sprawling landscape of southern Portugal, but they are in the higher Estremoz area, on a very specific schist-site. So, whilst their red wines have the richness and spice of the Alentejo, they also have a wonderful minerally freshness. Beef dishes, or a substantial rustic lamb dish, would be a happy bedfellow. [+]
