About This Wine:
Pulsing with a rich heritage, Tejo is home to a bounty of historical treasures that span the pages of time, from Roman ruins to Gothic castles, and from Manueline monasteries to medieval hilltop villages. To the Portuguese, Vale do Tejo is known as the land of vineyards, olive groves, cork forests, Mertolenga cattle, and the famous Lusitano horses.
The makers of the Rabisco “Reserva” Red Blend farm about 190 acres of vineyards, planted to both traditional Portuguese grapes as well as several international varietals. The excellent microclimate, near the Tagus River, and the quality of the soil contribute to the production of excellent wines.
The 2015 Rabisco “Reserva” marries a Portuguese varietal (Touriga Nacional) with an international varietal (Cabernet Sauvignon), and the resulting cuvee is stunning. Full-bodied, complex and with a long finish, it’s a delicious taste of Tejo.
