Dark garnet tinged purple. On the nose, lush blueberry, plum and red cherry aromas, overlaid with slate mineral. On the palate, a core of red cherry and blueberry fruit is wrapped with hints of fresh tobacco, black pepper and spice. Plush and refreshing all at once.
Southern Portugal's Alentejo is renowned for its arid climate in Western Europe. The Mourão sub-region, without highways and airports, embraced a rustic, agrarian lifestyle until the Alqueva Dam's completion in 2004. The "Barragem do Alqueva," now Europe's largest artificial lake, serves as a crucial reservoir and irrigation source for a significant part of Alentejo. The village of Aldeia da Luz, located below the waterline, faced relocation during this process. After consulting with the villagers, a distinctive resettlement plan was executed: Aldeia da Luz was reconstructed a few kilometers away on higher ground. This relocation effort included establishing a 200-hectare olive grove and an 83-hectare vineyard, currently owned, and cultivated by the 74 permanent residents of the village. Aplanta sources its fruit from this area, showcasing the rich, warm flavors and laid-back style characteristic of Alentejo reds.click here for more information.
