Product Description

Deeply rooted in origin, Neyen is a blend that truly reflects the centenary vines and unique soils of Apalta. A blend of Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 14 months in French oak. Complex aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant mix with notes of vanilla and subtle pepper, cedar and leather. The palate is fresh and elegant, with smooth tannins and a persistent finish. A wine to be mediated on its own. Also perfect with rich dishes such as beef and game.

Brand Description

The Neyen vineyard in the Apalta Valley is set apart by nature, wedged between where the Andes Mountains and the Coastal Range unite to form a stunning half-moon, and the old terraces of the Tinguiririca River. The Apalta terroir is known for unique energy that the locals call Neyen, the spirit of Apalta. Neyen is produced from old-vine ungrafted Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere from this unique vineyard site. The Cabernet vineyard was planted in 1890, and in 1936, Carmenere vines were added. The vineyards are 100% organic and hand harvested. The result is a powerful yet well-balanced wine with the concentration of Napa, but the length of the greatest Old World wines

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
