Coutada Velha 2018 Portugese Red Wine Alentejo

Coutada Velha 2018

This rich dry structured red Portuguese wine from the Alentejo region is full of dark ripe fruit on the nose.  The palate confirms flavours of blackberry jam, soft floral notes, and rich earthy soil.  It does well with a very light chill bringing out the flavour profile even more.

Interesting to note that this blend includes Trincadeira which is the same grape as Tinta Amarela used to make Port.  Therefore, giving this wine its rich deep red colour from the dark skins.
