The Mouchão Aguardente Bagaceira Alicante Bouschet 50cl is a aguardiente produced by Herdade do Mouchão.
This aged Bagaceira, or Marc Brandy, is sourced from the best Alicante Bouschet pomace and distilled in our wood-fired copper still, a process unchanged for over a century. Its natural colour, structure and texture Is the result of ageing for six years in old wooden pipes, previously used for aging Mouchão’s prized fortified ‘Sobremesa-Dessert’ wines.
About Herdade do Mouchão.
This 900-hectare estate called Herdade do Mouchão was bought at the end of the 19th century by John Reynolds to supply the cork business started by his grandfather.
The family then planted several plots of vines and in 1901 built a traditional winery, with thick mud-bricks, whitewashed walls and roofed in Portuguese tiles. John Reynolds is thought to have imported the first Alicante Bouschet vines from France. Mouchão is now famous for this red-fleshed variety.
The vineyards cover 38 hectares and plantings are divided into different plots, the oldest of which being that of the Alicante Bouschet.
