2019 Herdade do Sobroso Sobro 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 river Guadiana and its tributary the Rio dos Patos or the river of the 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 nice wines because there is never water debt. Besides the fact that there is sufficient water, this region is the only region within the Alentejo that has the influence of the ocean that ensures healthy maturation.
The Herade do Sobroso Sobro Tinto is a blend of Tempranillo (Aragonez), Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, aged in oak for 6 months. It is an intense red wine, wonderfully concentrated with fine aromas of chocolate and ripe fruit. Sultry, round and well balanced and with an excellent price/quality ratio. Beautiful as a stand-alone glass and recommended with juicy meat and game dishes. Slightly cooled (16C) also very good in the summer at the BBQ.
