Quinta do Mouro "Zagalos" Tinto Reserva '14

Quinta do Mouro is the icon of Alentejo. Located in Estremoz, Miguel Louro works with 33 hectares of vines, planted to different varietals and spread among several parcels. The wines of Estremoz, in the talented hands of Louro, walk that fine line. These are wines of power, but with the freshness that Estremoz can bring.

Miguel Louro's touch is clear, as he embodies his wines - temperamental yet balanced and full of charisma, energy and finesse. Let us remind you, when deciding between using his poker earnings to buy a sports car or a fixer-upper Quinta in Estremoz, Miguel chose the later, a bold move by someone in their 20's.

Over the years, he has fixed up the Quinta, but more importantly worked hard to grow grapes that offer freshness within a very warm region. Miguel knows what he wants and never falls short of achieving this, and it shows in the high quality, world class wines that he makes.

The Zagalos Tinto Reserva is named after the Zagalos family that originally owned the Quinta. The wine is a blend of Trincadeira, Aragonez (Tempranillo), Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon, grown in soils rich in schist and limestone. After fermentation in tank, the wine is aged for a year in used French and Portuguese oak barrels.

With a mediterranean, continental climate, the wine maintains wonderful acidity to compliment such robust flavors. Freshly ripened flavors of both red and black fruit emerge from the nose to the palate, with hints of spice that becomes elongated by its round tannic presence.

Miguel Louro's wines are truly groundbreaking, and represent the best of Alentejo.
