Description

The classic Incógnito reveals aromas of blackberry fruit, plums, and delicate notes of toast and spice, coupled with a complex profile of earthy aromas. Elegant on the palate, with velvety fruit backed by a firm tannic structure, this is a wine with strong ageing potential.

In 1988, a Danish and American couple set sail on a sailboat in search of a place to raise a family, plant a vineyard, and produce wine. A dream out of a fairy tale, which gave birth to the history of Cortes de Cima, today one of Portugal's leading wineries.

Located in Vidigueira, Cortes de Cima is a family estate run daily by Hans and Carrie Jorgensen, with 140 hectares of vineyard, where Aragonês, Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Petit Verdot, Antão Vaz, and Verdelho are planted. The oldest vines were planted in 1991 when Syrah was not permitted under the region's regulations. Even so, Hans, convinced that he had the ideal climate and soil for this variety in the Rhone, created the first Syrah wine, not legalised, produced in 1998 and marketed under the name Incógnito which quickly gained fame in Portugal and medals in London, Brussels and Bordeaux.
