Tasting notes: Aliança Bairrada Reserva (Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Baga) 2018

Intense berry and baked fruit aromas with spice and appealingly rustic notes. Vibrant plum and black cherry on the palate with liquorice hints, robust tannins, and finely poised acidity.

Food Pairing: Aliança Bairrada Reserva (Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Baga) 2018

“From Touriga Nacional to Trincadeira, the sweet buttery flavour and texture of lamb is a thing of beauty paired with a red of class, poise, balance and subtle fragrance.” Olly Smith – so drink with your classic Sunday roast lamb

 

 

Producer/Region:

One of Portugal’s largest and most progressive producers with 600 hectares spread across estates in five regions from Douro in the north to Alentejo in the south. Winemaker Francisco Antunes oversees what must be one of the most diverse ranges in Europe, from the 3rd largest Portuguese rose brand (Casal Mendes) to some of the country’s most impressive premium reds from estates in Douro, Dao, Bairrada and Alentejo. Arguably, Francisco’s greatest achievements lie between these extremes, a range of mid-priced wines from native varieties, full of character, quite distinctly Portuguese, but at the same time approachable and with fresh, modern fruit.

Although not accredited, since 2015 the Bacalhôa group is regularly audited for the scope of its ethical, social and environmental work, always with a green result. In 2020, it is planning a SEDEX Membership Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) audit of its labour and health and safety policies. It is also planning to fully convert one its vineyards to organic viticulture as soon as possible.
