The wine to honour the founder of this fourth generation family producer, Lisbon’s Mustache is a four way equal blend of Port-grape Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca, Sousão and Jaen, all dry grown in the Garrocha family vineyards just outside Lisbon.
Steel fermented then divided between concrete tanks and oak barriques for maturation, the final blending balances out primary fruit characters with oak and spice. Robust and dark in colour, decanting is recommended to bring out the best of the complex aromas, blackberries, plum and dates intermingling with gamey, earthy notes and hints of tobacco and dark chocolate. The palate is quite full, dark fruits to the fore with a smooth mid-palate, tingling with peppery spice and vanilla on the finish.
At it’s best with a hearty casserole, barbecued meats or roast lamb.
