São Sebastião Red Wine is produced from the hillside vineyards of Arruda dos Vinhos, Portugal. This scenic location offers perfect conditions for the growth and maturation of the grape varieties.
Climate: The region’s Mediterranean climate with a notable Atlantic influence nurtures the grapevines, shaping the wine’s distinctive flavor profile.
Grape Varieties: Crafted from a blend of Syrah and Tinta Roriz, (Tempranillo) the São Sebastião Red Wine offers the finest qualities of these classic grape varieties.
Soil: The vineyards benefit from clay-limestone soil that imparts unique characteristics to the wine, adding to its depth and complexity.
Vinification: The winemaking process includes cold soak fermentation in stainless steel tanks. This method helps to extract the optimal flavors and aromas from the grapes, while preserving their freshness.
Food Pairing: São Sebastião Red Wine pairs perfectly with red meats, sausages, and game meat. The robust and balanced flavor profile of the wine makes it an excellent accompaniment to these dishes.
Serving Temperature: For the best experience, serve this red wine at a temperature of 16-18ºC. This allows the wine to fully express its aromatic complexity and balanced structure.
Alcohol Content and Acidity: With an alcohol content of 13.5%vol, a total acidity of 4.83g/l, and a pH of 3.79, São Sebastião Red Wine strikes a delightful balance between bold flavors and refreshing acidity.
Winemaker: This superior quality wine is the result of the dedication and expertise of renowned winemaker Filipe Sevinate Pinto. His commitment to crafting fine wines is reflected in every bottle of São Sebastião Red Wine.
Immerse yourself in the rich tradition of Portuguese winemaking with a bottle of São Sebastião Red Wine. It's more than just a drink - it's an experience in a glass.
