Intense garnet-red hue. Exuberant and complex aromas of black fruits like blackberry and blueberry, harmoniously combined with aromatic hints (menthol and tobacco) as well as with notes of spices. On the palate, there are well-balanced, round, rich taste of fruits and spices, with a good concentration of tannins and long persistence.

Wine Enthusiast (93 Points):

“This is a powerful wine with big tannins and dense black fruits. Its blend, dominated by Alicante Bouschet, guarantees the tannins, the firm structure and the wine's aging potential. Drink from 2021.”

Alexandre Relvas Sr. purchased the 430-acre estate of Herdade of São Miguel in the Alentejo region. It is now run by his son, who bears the same name. The property is dedicated to honoring Portuguese wine heritage as 86 of those initially purchased acres are planted to Portuguese varieties like Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet and Trincaceira, while 240 more acres are exclusively dedicated to cork oak trees.

The Alentejo region of Portugal encompasses a large geographic area, which includes the Algarve coastal region. It’s known for its natural beauty and extreme climate which are beneficial to Herdade of São Miguel’s grape growing. A mixture of clay and schist soils aid in the development of three-dimensional flavors. The winery can handle up to 550 tons of grapes, all hand harvested. The family believes in offering quality at affordable prices.

As farmers, the Relvas family feels that they owe the environment a debt of gratitude. Twenty percent of the vineyards are certified organic, and with each passing year, Alexandre converts more vineyards. They use nearby wetlands to filter and reuse water and employ hundreds of Merino sheep to fertilize and “weed” the soil. Also, keen to reforest the area, they have planted over 100,000 native trees.
