Winemaker Notes

Souzao is a little-known varietal originally from Portugal and traditionally used in Port and dessert wines all over the world. Its rich deep color and dried fruit taste give the wine an intense but fruity flavor profile. Only a few wineries in the world use this grape for a dry red wine. Souzao is a teinturier grape, meaning that not only does the skin have color but the flesh also has a dark inky purple color due to a large amount of anthocyanin compounds (pigments).
