Aragonez

Portuguese wine grape, also known as Trempanillo in Spain.

A dependable, surprising wine, with a luxurious texture, a mouth filling fruitiness and yet low in tannins and acidity. This wine improves even more during the aging process in oak casks as the taste evolves to incorporate soft spices released from the oak.

Ideally suited to hot climates, the Aragonez is a flexible wine which can be consumed young or aged for drinking later. And all this without losing its particular taste which makes it a popular table wine.

What to eat with Aragonez?

At Monte do Alem we like to serve this wine slightly chilled in summer with ham or smoked sausages, young suckling pig, grilled meats with herbs, roast lamb and many spicy dishes such as curries. Goes well with soft Portuguese cheeses, or even a Brie.
