Founded in 1998 by Comandador Leonel Cameirinha, and now managed by his grandson Felipe, there is a modernity to this company with a passion to show the beauty and calmness of the Alentejo.
When translated the name of this red states the legend of the moorish fountain in the nearby town of Beja. A forbidden love between a moorish girl and a young christian man where love would never happen. So why not fall in love with this wine instead..
Cabernet Sauvignon, Trincadeira, Aragonez and Alicante Bouschet. Vinified by the traditional tanning process in stainless steel vats with fermentation temperatures around 26 °C and ageing in French oak barrels for 12 months.
Intense ruby coloured wine, aroma of red fruits, vanilla, cherry, and a hint of smokey bacon. Soft tannins and good acidity that allows it to have great longevity. This wine has not been filtered or stabilised, so it is subject to creating a deposit.
Fab alongside a bacon butty with all the trimmings, smokey tofu burgers and spicy curly fries or smokey paprika infused lentils with Faken and mushrooms… go on… give it a blast!
