Velvet 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 21 Golds, a Best Buy and 90 points from Wine Enthusiast over seven vintages prove him right.

They said he was ‘aluado’ (‘loony’) but José Neiva Correia has proved his doubters wrong. Alicante Bouschet produces some of the world’s deepest coloured wines and is often used to enhance Portugal’s top reds, but it's rarely found solo. That didn't deter José – determined as he was to let the darkly delicious grape shine. And it certainly paid off. Aluado is now one of our customers' favourite reds (with 850+ 5-star reviews). Following on from last year’s triple Gold medal triumph, José again used grapes from his own historic estate, Quinta de Porto Franco (which dates back to the 12th century and is thought to have the oldest vineyard in Alenquer). A rich, velvety red, great solo or served with roast lamb or a herby vegetarian casserole.
