Herdade do Mouchão來自葡萄牙Alentejo 酒區，一直以果味主導，容易入口的葡萄酒見稱。不過這次試的則給我相當優雅的感覺，尤其是他的旗艦酒Mouchão，酒莊的代表 David Marques Ferreira 説他們用大木桶陳釀24個月，是不希望桶味喧賓奪主。
最後那支Mouchão Tonel nº 3-4更是只有Execptional Year 才有的，只出自3和4號缸，因而得名。
My first Portuguese wine tasting event outside Macau, I am so glad to see Hong Kong wine merchant Adega Royale HK importing some really serious wine from Portugal, this time, the Herdade do Mouchão from Alentejo. ”
Fruit driven” and “easy to drink” are the classic wine style of Alentejo.
However, I found their wine very elegant, especially their flagship wine Mouchão David Marques Ferreira explained to me that they aged the wine in oak and mahogany vats of 5.000 liters capacity for 24 months because they don’t want the oak flavor of small barrels take the major part.
In fact, I found the wine has its balance between fruit and oak. While comparing the 2003 and 2009 vintage, it demonstrated it’s aging potential. Mouchão Tonel nº 3-4 is only made in years of exceptional quality.
It’s name came from the two wooden vats numbered 3 and 4 where they were aged.
