Velvety, black fruit Alicante plays a minor role in many of Portugal’s reds, but José Neiva Correia decided to give it centre stage. Madness, some thought, but 26 Golds, a Best Buy and thousands of rave customer reviews later has proven José right.

They said he was ‘aluado’ (‘moon-mad’) but José Neiva Correia has proven his doubters wrong. Inky black Alicante Bouschet is usually found in Portuguese red blends, there to add deep colour and black fruit flavours. Rarely, if ever, is it seen on its own. That didn’t deter José - a talented winemaker, credited by wine journo Tim Atkin as the man behind Portugal’s wine revolution. José saw potential in this dark Portuguese star and his conviction has paid off. Aluado is now one of our customers’ favourite reds with over 1000 5-star reviews. Winning triple Gold last vintage and for the 2020, Jose makes the wine at his family estate, Quinta de Porto Franco, just north of Lisbon. A rich, velvety red, great solo or with grilled meats and stews.
