The Symington's family’s first property outside the Douro region. Quinta da Fonte Souto is in the Portalegre subregion of the Alto Alentejo in southern Portugal. Close to the São Mamede range (1,025 metres), the property benefits from the area’s altitude with its cooler microclimate in sharp contrast to the Alentejo region’s typically hot and dry conditions. Yields are
low due to the schist and granite soils, which are less fertile than those found in the flat and rolling terrain which characterizes the majority of the Alentejo. There are 207 hectares on the property, of which 43 are planted with vines. The principal grape varieties are Aragonês, Alfrocheiro, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The property has a substantial chestnut grove, from which its name is derived — ‘souto’ refers to a wooded area planted with chestnut trees

Tasting Notes

The year’s relatively cool growing cycle
shows through on the elegance and
clarity of the aromas, which range
from pine and eucalyptus to a lovely
rose garden scent. There are also hints
of raspberry and kirsch. Packed with
flavours of fresh, red and black fruits of
the forest, with fine-grained spicy tannins
and some clove and nutmeg. Very
approachable now but will be even better
after a further year or two in bottle.






ripe dark fruits, fruity, smooth

Press Review

''Some of Portugal’s most important indigenous grape varieties are in this heady mix of seven - and they all play their part in producing this delightful red. It has lovely balancing freshness and acidity, with a palate dominated by black fruit flavours, and warming notes of liquorice, spices, and fine-grained tannins. Enjoy with: Pan-fried pork chop.''

Press Review 2

''Rich, deep, seductive fruit regales the nose with flickers of liquorice and toasted oak. The palate is robust but has pared-back refinement that showcases the ripe fruit before leading into a lightly peppered finish. Despite being 14.5% alcohol, this drinks on the softer side for an Alentejo and a similar Rioja of this quality would cost significantly more.''
