Escondido Equilibrio Mei e Meio Red Blend 2015Escondido Wines is the project of Michael Wren who was a winemaker for one of Portugal's top producers, Esporao, before opening Wren Estate, based in Heathcote. Whilst running their Douro winery, Quinta dos Murcas, Wren sourced grapes from a brilliant vineyard, in the cooler Dao region to the south of the Douro. The Dao is marked by higher altitudes and heavy granite soils and for Wren this region is the true home of Portugal's best known red variety - Touriga Nacional. The Dao produces pretty, structured Touriga Nacional that is bright and blue fruited with fresh acidity with clear mineral notes.
The Escondido Meio e Meio comes from 2015 which was a very cool vintage, so this wine was very tightly wound when first botted but has opened up beautifully and is drinking wonderfully at present. Meio e Meio translates as half/half, referring to the composition of the wine. 50% Touriga Nacional and 50% Jaen (Mencia in Spain) which brings some balancing red fruit and tannin to the blend.

Mouchao Dom Rafael Tinto 2015
40% Alicante Bouschet, 40% Trincadeira, 20% Aragonez
Mouchão has been owned by the Reynolds family since the mid-19th century, when Thomas Reynolds set out south from Porto to the Alentejo in search of a cork estate. He found Mouchão, all 900 hectares of it. Even today the estate is mostly cork grove, with a bit of vineyard - although its the wine that it is known for.
This the second wine, the Dom Rafael, which has a lower proportion of Alicante, starts life the same way with some new barrels but 50% into second use 225 litre barrels.2015RedSouth Africa489$48.00 As low as $43.20
