Tasting Notes

Intense ruby colour. This wine has an aroma of vibrant red fruit with floral notes, courtesy of the Touriga Nacional grape variety. On the palate, it is incredibly balanced with very smooth tannins and a refreshing acidity. An extremely gastronomic wine with a long finish.


44% Alicante Bouschet, 40% Touriga Nacional, 16% Aragonez

Technical Notes

Vinified from selected batches of Alicante Bouschet, Touriga Nacional and Aragonez grapes. After studying their maturation, the grapes were collected at their optimum point of phenolic/aromatic maturation. After destemming and soft-crushing, pre-fermentative maceration took place for 3-4 days, in order to increase the wine's aromatic and polyphenolic complexity. Fermentation followed at 26ºC, gentle pumping over preserving the fruit and extracting the smooth tannins that give importance balance to this wine.

Food Pairing

With its smooth tannins and elegant balance, this wine pairs wonderfully with light dishes, such as poultry and pasta, as well as with sausages, ham and more sophisticated meat dishes.

Did you know fact

Named after Alentejo’s native pig whose diet is rich in acorns, Trinca Bolotas means “acorn eaters.” The feral black pig is an iconic image of the Alentejo landscape, heritage and gastronomy.
