Se•gre•do [s 'gredu] Portuguese for Secret

Segredo is a limited-production, fortified red dessert wine inspired by traditional ports. Our unique “secret” is the use of Petite Sirah which lends itself to producing ageworthy wines with layers of richness. The fruit was kept on the vine for an extended period at our estate Jardine Vineyard, enabling it to develop rich, concentrated flavors. The fruit was sorted, destemmed and then pumped over up to three times per day. After six days of fermentation, neutral grape spirits were added to halt fermentation and preserve the remaining natural sugar. Aged for 20 months in French and American oak barrels, Segredo is the perfect dessert wine or can be enjoyed together with chocolate, cheese or nuts.
