“This wine, with its firm tannins and dense fruit, brings out the structure of Touriga Nacional and Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. Spice, wood aging and rich berry fruits all promise medium-term aging.” 89pts - Wine Enthusiast 1/2014
As Portugal’s most well-known grape variety, it has made a nice home for itself in the Tejo region.
Producing wines with high tannins, full body and flavors like dark berries, plums and purple flowers, the grape thrives in southern Portugal’s warm climate.
Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth. It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stablemate Merlot, and its opposite number in Burgundy, Pinot Noir. From its origins in Bordeaux, Cabernet has successfully spread to almost every winegrowing country in the world.
It has found a special niche and style in the Tejo Region, one of the few Portuguese winegrowing regions where it can ripen to perfection.
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those varieties that can be termed "enriching"; deeply colored and thick-skinned, it can spice up blends, imbuing body and consistency to well-composed, perfumed, fruity and spicy wines.
It is rarely bottled as a varietal wine in the Tejo, but is present in small amounts to give structure in many wines.
Appreciated for its versatility, resistance and correctness it yields wines of immense longevity that age with elegance and security.
Of all the non-Portuguese varieties to be grown here, Syrah has best adapted to the Tejo climate, adjusting easily to the searing summer heat with its interminable hours of sunshine and extreme temperatures.
Big robust and full-bodied wines with lots of fruit, some pepper, usually spicy, sometimes powerful and alcoholic.
Wines from early-ripening grapes are accessible when young, smooth and inviting with good cellaring potential.
