Bojador Vinho Tinto 2017

Alentejo, Central and Southern Portugal, PortugalWinemakers Pedro Ribeiro and his wife Catarina Vieira moved to Vidigueira, in the Alentejo, to produce wines that are true to the historical traditions of this region. This, entry-tier wine is a blend of aragonez, trincadeira, and touriga nacional, foot-trodden, and fermentated for 21 days in small, stainless tanks before aging in used French oak for six months prior to filtration and bottling. Plush purple and black fruits are ripe with sunshine and framed with French oak. Tannins are soft and cushy, as is the palate, with a slight welcome rusticity to this bigger red wine. Well suited to sausages and grilled mushrooms to counter the warming 14 degree finish.Tasted: 22 January 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: Portugal 13.00 Portugal Producer: BojadorBlend: Aragonês - Trincadeira - Touriga Nacional
