Product Description

Hi Folks!

Don’t usually see a wine honoring an old mule, but who are we to question?

The 2016 Mula Velha Reserva Tinto (old mule in Portuguese) is ANOTHER astounding value from Porto and one that your home should not be without.

This red is a blend of Tempranillo, Touriga Nacional and Syrah – varietals representing Spain, Portugal and France, what could be better? While most Portuguese reds rely specifically on Touriga Nacional, the medium bodied Tempranillo adds civility and restraint to what could be an overly decadent jam bowl. The blending of Syrah adds gamey, earthy notes. Mind you, this is an estate wine, not a co-op of vineyard grapes from far and wide.

What factors make this wine stand out from other table reds? For one, the vineyards are ancient and the roots grow deep, turning up exotic and unique flavors (yes, that is a recurring theme with us); secondly, the winery truly does count on mules to aerate and plow the land.

And given that the Iberian Peninsula has the climate made for these varietals, it’s almost unfair that they get to make better wine at lower cost – and aren’t subject to the 25% surcharge Americans have to pay for certain imported wines.

So, the Mula offers up a round, ripe and pleasant concoction of fruity aromas, elegant and precise notes of red cherry, plum, dash of violet and hint of pepper. Drink this all day – you’ll want to, and it is very affordable.
