We wanted to pack all the big, juicy flavours of the original Stones & Bones into a red that was softer, easier going and lower in alcohol. That's the Ligeiro. Still supple, silky and full of ripe black fruit and spice. Great value from Portugal.
The original Stones & Bones red is an all-time customer favourite, adored for rich black fruit and spice. And we wanted to deliver all that, no compromise, with a lower punch of alcohol. Hence Ligeiro – meaning light in Portuguese. It took winemaker Vasco Martins many hours of blending to get it just right. As its name suggests, it comes from a landscape littered with ancient boulders and dinosaur fossils. A gorgeous blend of local and international grapes, where Touriga Nacional joins forces with Syrah, Tinta Roriz and Alicante. From a family-owned winery, awarded 'Best Producer of Portugal' at Mundus Vini 2021 and Berliner Wein Trophy 2020, it's a silky red, so supple and fruity, it's a pleasure on its own or with tacos or pizza.
"All the ripe black fruit of the original, but softer and easier going at just 10.5%"
