Aragonês, Trincadeira, Syrah, Alicante Bouschet
From the sunny climes of Alentejo in Southern Portugal - a spicy, blackberry flavoured, juicy number.
The purchase of Casa Agricola José de Sousa Rosado Fernandes in 1986 saw a long-held dream come true for José Maria da Fonseca: to produce an Alentejo wine using traditional winemaking methods from a historic and prestigious estate.
Montado was first produced from the 1991 harvest, and the original blend has been maintained ever since, made mainly from grape varieties traditional to the Alentejo region.
