Herdade dos Grous, Tinto

€17.99

This wonderful red comes from the thrilling region of Alentejo, wouth-east of Lisbon toward the Algarve and the Spanish boarder.

Made from indigenous Portuguese grape varieties of Touriga Nacional and Aragonez blended with Alicante Bouschet and Syrah, it is the epitome of the modern Portugal. Broad in structure and dark fruit-flavoured with a balanced acidity and wonderful pulpy mouth-feel, it presents a balance of old and new world wine traditions, which is in truth, uniquely Portuguese.

This estate in Albernoa is part of a large German-owned hotel group and is home to a beautiful estate that produces olive oil as well as wine and houses stables and horses.

It's a beautiful location that has been man-made into a very, very beautiful estate... it's rather strange in some ways as you could imagine the place being beautiful on its own, but the work they have done, certainly for wine-making and grape growing, has been remarkably good while feeling at once authentic and not falsely manufactured.

This is in large part due to the input of their amazing consultant Luis Duarte, who has been the wine-maker since the estate began in 1997. His skill and philosophy to seek out the best from soils and a broad range of grape varieties (including international and Portuguese varieties) has been the hallmark for an entire generation of wine estates to follow over the last 20 years.

Amazing service from the get go!
I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!

★★★★★
Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
