Natalie's Score: 91/100

Dark and spicy, this is racy and exciting Portuguese red wine. Black tarry fruit and toast and smoke. The 2013 vintage of this robust Portuguese red wine is a blend of indigenous grapes: Alicante Bouschet, Touriga Nacional and Aragonês. The Alentejo pig featured on the front bottle wanders freely in the region's oat forests, feasting on a diet rich in acorns. It's native to Europe and the only species of grazing pig Europe. It has also played a pivotal role in preserving the woodlands of Europe. This wine was aged in oak barrels for 6 months. Pair with hearty meat dishes.

Food pairings: roasted veal, hearty soups, roasted duck breast, hamburger.

Reviews and Ratings

From Portugal's Alentejo viticultural region, Herdade Peso's Trinca Bolotas (2013) is a red blend of several wine grapes indigenous to Portugal: Alicante Bouschet, Touriga Nacional and Aragonês. The 375 ml wine format is a perfect amount for one person to have with a roast of pork. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
