Brand Description

Windvane was created by winemaker Steven Urberg as an homage to the wind that contributes to the unique character of the wines of Western Carneros. Windvane is selected from the most expressive vineyard blocks throughout 335 acres of estate vineyards-a unique property has an East facing exposure combined with a tall mountain range to the West. Vines from the windiest, steepest, and rockiest areas of the vineyards where the soils are very thin produce small crops of very slow ripening fruit that produce intense character. The result is Windvane, a concentrated pinot noir with great depth of fruit and a generous mouthfeel

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.
