About This Wine:
Pulsing with a rich heritage, Tejo claims a bounty of historical treasures spanning the pages of time, from Roman ruins and Gothic castles to Manueline monasteries and medieval hilltop villages. Tejo is known as the land of vineyards, olive groves, cork forests, Mertolengo cattle and Lusitano horses.
With a focus on quality and balance, the wines of Tejo are some of the most vibrant being crafted in Portugal today. Tejo’s native red grapes include the bold Touriga Nacional — Portugal’s most famous varietal — as well as Trincadeira, Castelão and Aragones. These indigenous grapes thrive in the Tejo region’s warm climate and complex soils, retaining high natural acidity to produce balanced wines with bright fruit characteristics.
Cabeca De Toiro’s “Reserva” is a three-variety blend that delivers plenty of pure drinking pleasure while perpetuating the sterling reputation of Tejo wines.
