Casal das Aires Alicante Bouschet 2020

The Casal das Aires Alicante Bouschet is a red wine from the Tejo wine region of Portugal made from old vine Alicante Bouschet. This artisanal, old vine wine (just 1,056 bottles produced) was vinified in traditional lagares and aged for 18 months in used 500l and 225l oak barrels. The nose is abundant in wild fruit notes, such as blackberry and blueberry, along with black pepper and cocoa. The palate is fresh, well-balanced with smoky charcuterie undertones and velvety smooth tannins. The finish is long and silky.

Delivery Times

We aim to to have your delivery with you within 5-7 working days of receiving your order, but often it can be much sooner. If you need your order by a certain date please get in touch and we'll do our best to get it to you as required.


Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
