2014 Herdade do Sobroso Reserva Tinto
Herdade do Sobroso is located in Vidigueira in the Alentejo region. This is one of the oldest wine regions in Portugal. In the beautiful Alentejo, Herdade do Sobroso has a perfect location with its vineyards located on the banks of the Guadiana River and the Rio dos Patos river or the river of ducks. The trademark is therefore the ducks on the labels. It is the perfect setting for the ripening of the grapes and few vineyards have this luxury and this partly explains why this winery can make very beautiful wines because there is never water debt. In addition to the fact that there is sufficient water, this region is the only one within the Alentejo that has an ocean influence that ensures a healthy ripening. This beautiful Herdade do Sobroso Reserva is a blend of the Alicante Boushet & Cabernet Sauvignon.
The grapes are hand picked and only crushed very softly. The wine is fermented in stainless steel barrels under controlled temperature and has been allowed to mature in new French oak barrels for over a year and a half. The wine has a beautiful dark red color in the glass. In the nose, the wine has beautiful notes of dark plums, wild berries, cocoa and vanilla. On the palate this full-bodied is also fresh with soft tannins with a long-lasting and elegant finish. This is a wonderfully beautiful red wine that begs to be enjoyed. This is possible in front of the open fire with good company but drink this wine with a nice game roast or with a Ribeye or entrocôte with a roquefort sauce or with a roe steak and then pure nature.
