2017 Encosta do Sobral Touriga Nacional red
Encosta do Sobral red wine is produced from the Touriga Nacional grape variety. After maturing in French oak barrels for 12 months, the wine presents an intense red colour and floral and fruity aromas. In the mouth, it is fresh, balanced, and unctuous, with soft but present tannins, with excellent depth and a persistent aftertaste.
Encosta do Sobral is an estate in the sub-region of Tomar, situated in the northernmost vineyards of the Tejo, which is distinguished by its schist soils. With 70 hectares of vineyard, it is privileged for its geographical location and unique landscape.
Santos & Seixo is a family company, formed by two families.
Alzira dos Santos and Pedro Seixo dreamed of taking up the history of both families and dedicating themselves body and soul to wine. The dream became reality when they carried out their first harvests in the country's most emblematic regions, Douro and Alentejo, in 2010.
The project grew and today the family owns properties and produces wines in Douro, Alentejo and the Vinho Verde region. In a combination of modern and traditional, from the careful selection of grapes to the production and ageing in oak barrels, all processes are done to preserve as much as possible the genuineness of the grape.
