Se•gre•do [s 'gredu] Portuguese for Secret
Segredo is a limited production fortified wine crafted from the traditional Touriga port varietal. Our unique “secret” is the addition of a small percentage of Petite Sirah that adds layers of richness. The fruit was kept on the vine for an extended period at our estate Huerhuero Vineyard, enabling it to develop rich, concentrated flavors and elevated sugars. After harvest, the fruit was destemmed and then crushed by feet repeatedly over four to five days. After eight days of fermentation, neutral grape spirits were added to halt fermentation and preserve the remaining natural sugar. Aged for 28 months in neutral oak puncheons, Segredo is the perfect dessert wine or can be enjoyed together with chocolate, cheese, or nuts.
Enjoy now through 2017.
