Mimo Moutinho Lisboa Red

Posted by

The 2021 Mimo Moutinho Lisboa Red from Aldi is made from the Touriga Nacional grape. Following the footsteps of its predecessor, the 2019 vintage, which Decanter praised for its ‘juicy brambles, liquorice and smoky tarry notes’, this wine maintains a high standard, scoring a respectable 3.8 on Vivino.

On tasting, there’s red fruits. The wine is well-balanced, medium-bodied, with a taste very similar to that of the popular and ubiquitous Porta 6, perhaps intentionally so. When tasted back to back with the Porta 6, the Aldi version is slightly smoother despite having less alcohol at 13% rather than 13.5% for Porta 6. Like the Porta 6, it’s versatile and can be considered a great choice for a variety of occasions and drinkers.

In terms of value, the wine’s price point has seen some fluctuation, ranging from £4.99 to £6.29, sitting at £5.99 at the time of writing. This makes it an affordable option for those seeking quality without the expense.
