Brand Description

Seven Falls is proud to call the Wahluke Slope home to its wines. Many local winemakers consider the Wahluke Slope to be the backbone of the Washington wine industry. As one of the recent American Viticulture Areas (AVA) established in the state, it is a virtual Eden for wine grapes. The results are wines with bold, ripe, full-bodied yet varietally pure fruit flavors; wines of the Wahluke Slope are expressive and rich, with an elegant structure and memorable finish. There were once seven waterfalls spanning 10 miles that ran through the Wahluke Slop

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.
