Overview of the Wine
At the beginning of the 19th century, Thomas Reynolds migrated to the Alentejo region with the cork business as his goal. Three generations later, his grandson John Reynolds, acquired Herdade do Mouchão for wine production.

In 1901 the first vineyards were planted on the property and, in 1929, construction began on a traditional winery and distillery, which still produces Mouchão brandy today.

Today, Herdade do Mouchão continues to be managed and worked on by the descendants of the original family and the entire winemaking process remains virtually unchanged, preserving the traditional harvest by hand and the fermentation of the grapes in stone presses, using foot treading. It is these techniques and the entire success story of Herdade do Mouchão that makes this wine-growing company so close to what wines used to be like.

Grape / Blend
Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Syrah

Origin
Alentejo, Portugal

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A blend of the Estate's very best Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Syrah. The Estate’s top-end non-Alicante Bouschet, Ponte Das Canas is aged in a blend of tropical hardwood ‘tonels’ and new oak barriques and bottled 18-24 months after harvest.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
This is the second wine from this historic estate. It has much of the richness and dense, dusty tannins of the first wine while also having more direct black-fruit flavors. The rich character of this powerful wine is just reaching maturity and the wine is ready to drink.
