This Riesling has a lovely balance of bright citrus and floral notes over a core of sweet stone fruit and lychee. The varietal's signature minerality plays on the nose, then carries through the soft, luxurious palate.

Brand Description

Legend has it that long ago, a farmer befriended a dragon, using the creature to guard his crops from raiding poachers. Flying overhead, the dragon would snap its jaws, causing the thieves to flee empty handed. Upon the dragon's demise, the farmer planted a vine over its majestic body, which in time grew into a vineyard. Each harvest, the spirit of the dragon lives on, inspiring the creation of Snap Dragon wines. The wines deliver exceptional quality and val418732

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.
