Vira Cabecas Red Alentejo

£25.70

SKU: VIRACABECASRED

Description

This beautiful natural wine is made from a Single Old Vineyard field blend (about 8 different grape varieties) in the Serra de Soa Momede microclimate area of the Northern Alentejo region of Portugal. Grapes are handpicked and undergo natural fermentation in a cement vat with 6 weeks maceration followed by ageing in old oak cask and barrels for 21 months. Bottled without fining and filtering.

This creates a wonderfully balanced red with incredible aromas and depth, engaging aromatics working in harmony and perfect balance with nature. It has the body and warmness of the Alentejo sun, with a combination of lush red fruit and a silky texture from start to finish. Try with a selection of cheeses and tomato based winter stews with warm spices, lamb and slow cooked meat, aubergine, peppers and cumin dishes. 

Winemaker Joao Afonso of Cabeças do Reguengo is a fascinating man, evolving from a career as a leading ballet dancer to a top Portuguese natural garage wine producer! He produces wine with minimal intervention and optimum quality, obsessed with wines from old vineyards, cared for with organic and sustainable awareness to achieve wines that can be classed as truly natural.
