2012 Cartuxa Evora Alentejo

SKU #1295685

A reference Portuguese producer based in the UNESCO heritage village of Evora, Cartuxa produces this wine with a blend of Aragones (Tempranillo), Alicante Bouschet, Alfrocheiro and Trincadeiro. It is generously fruited and broad shouldered, but with balanced acidity to the darker berry fruits. A delicious Alentejo red, and particularly a great choice for fans of California Rhone blends.

It has been fun getting to know more wines from Portugal and this was one that especially stood out to me. Wild ripe berry notes on the nose promise a big wine, and while there was plenty of fruit here there is a long acid core that drives this wine. Juicy without being heavy, this wine ended with a very cool finish and made me ready for another sip.

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
