Fabulous and powerful wine made by wine writer Richard Mayson. He is a well known contributor with Decanter Magazine and wrote five books on Portuguese wines. This wine is from Alentejo at an altitude of 500m. Pedra Basta (meaning ‘enough stone’) is a blend of Trincadeira, Aragones, Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon planted 15 years ago. An inviting plum and fig nose this is a delicious, ripe full-flavoured wine. A rich full and round palate of great balance, displaying rich Alentejo berry fruit characters, with integrated oak tannins and a great length of finish. Aged 12 months in French oak.
