Product Details

Tasting Notes

A wonderfully ripe, rich red from the southern region of Alentejo, in Portugal.

Made from the Touriga Nacional grape this is absolutely crammed with blackberry fruit flavours and generous kick of pepper and cinnamon.

An inspired choice for a hearty stew.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2011 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: “You still have a few days to load up at the lower price with this mighty Portuguese red that’s built for flavour-packed dishes involving mushrooms, tomatoes or peppers.”

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 28/09/2013

Of the 2011 vintage, Susy Atkins said: “A pretty serious red for the price, peppery and savoury, long and full-bodied on the finish. Touriga Nacional is the best-known grape in port production, here unfortified.”

Susy Atkins - Stella, Sunday Telegraph 25/05/2014

Background

History

João Portugal Ramos is strongly linked to Portuguese wines: first as a consultant oenologist, and since 1992, as a producer. João built Falua in 2004 and the winery has gone from strengh to strength, boasting state of the art winemaking technology and producing wines of an excellent standard. Current head winemaker Antonina Barbosa has a Master in oenology, she has been Falua's winemaker for the last years and her wines have won many awards.

Regional info

The Alentejo is located in the South of Portugal and is the hottest and driest part of the country, spanning right accross to the border of Spain. The vineyards are planted around Estremoz at over 400m of altitude, which gives much needed cool breezes and helps the fruit to retain its freshness creating wines with vibrant fruit and good acidity.
