A Flawless Score for Porto Vintage Quinta do Seixo 2017News
Sandeman Porto Vintage Quinta do Seixo 2017 awarded 100 points by Wine Enthusiast
Wine Enthusiast has just awarded 100 points to Sandeman Porto Vintage Quinta do Seixo 2017, which now accomplishes the top score in such a renowned North American publication.
2017 will always be remembered as a great Vintage year, with Quinta do Seixo standing above all! This Sandeman estate located at the heart of the Douro Demarcated Region gave birth to the first wine of the brand to have achieved 100 points – the top score in a reference international magazine.
As the quality potential of the vineyards with the same name was confirmed, the winemaking team lead by Luís Sottomayor was able to harness the climate effects of the dry and hot year of 2017 and to cut through the strong maturations registered during the harvest, thus creating the perfect conditions to produce a masterpiece.
In a homage to mother nature and hard labour, this distinction is especially rewarding for Luís Sottomayor, who now sees a wine of his creation achieving 100 points in a US specialized magazine for the second time in 2 years. "Our greatest motivation when producing a wine is that it provides pleasure to consumers once it lands on their table. That is the reason why we work hard every day. If, besides that, we are able to achieve a score such as this one, then the entire team can also definitely be proud of such an accomplishment." says Luís.
This is yet another unique moment for the Sandeman brand that will forever mark a special milestone in its more than 225 years of heritage, experience, and knowledge.
