Azul Portugal (Alentejo)
Product not available in United States
The Alentejo region covers nearly one-third of the territory of Portugal. This region, in the southeast corner of the country, is made up of rolling plains that are protected from the harsh climate of the Atlantic region. The Alentejo region is slowly gaining recognition and prestige as more of its fine wines hit the market. The hot, dry climate here helps craft rich red wines that are easy to drink at the same time.
Azul is a Portuguese brand from the Alentejo region. The Azul Portugal Alentejo Reserva 2013 is a fine red wine that shows how good the red grapes grown in this region can be. Made using a blend of Petit Verdot, Syrah, Aragonez, and Alicante Brouschet grapes, this wine is both complex and intense. The six months spent ageing in French oak really help the four varieties of grape marry and merge into one beautiful whole.
Juicy and fresh with a hint of smokiness and great acidity, Azul Portugal Alentejo Reserva 2013 is a wine that pairs well with all kinds of Mediterranean fare. Full of the flavours of red fruit and shining with the deep dark colour of pomegranate juice, this wine is sure to be a hit no matter what you pair it with.
