Tasting note
Madness and genius are closely allied and when the great José Neiva declared he’d made a pure Alicante wine (this grape usually plays a minor role), his peers thought him crazy. A series of Golds however proved him right! Enjoy this lush, silky red.

Description
Alicante Bouchet produces some of the world’s most deeply coloured wines and is often used to add depth to some of Portugal’s top reds. Here you find it in its pure form thanks to the vision of José Neiva Correia. A doyen of the Portuguese wine industry with many awards to his name, he now has his own company, and combines generations of tradition with an inquisitive spirit undimmed at 60 years of age.For this red José selected grapes from his own historic estate, Quinta de Porto Franco, which dates back prior to the founding of Portugal in the 12th century and is thought to be the oldest vineyard in Alenquer. From a low yielding, top quality vintage, Aluado is a big, rich wine best served with roast meats – try pork or rack of lamb.
