2014 Vinho Tinto
Almost Sold Out!
While not very well known to most consumers, Portugal has for centuries been making delicious dry red wines from the same varieties as those used for their iconic sweet wines. In 2014 Elevation Ten assembled three Portuguese varieties from small vineyard locations in the Sierra Foothills to make our first “Vinho Tinto”, a dry red blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cao and Tinta Roriz. These grapes are remarkable for their ability to show full physiological ripeness at lower sugar levels, allowing us to make a ripe and approachable wine at lower alcohol levels and moderate acidity.
