Cabecas Do Reguengo Solsticio Vinho Tinto

Joao Afonso has been blessed with two amazing and fascinating careers and now his evolution from a leading ballet dancer to a top Portuguese natural garage wine producer is complete!

In 1994 after a small experience with the then young Dirk Niepoort he began his love affair

with wine with minimal intervention and optimum quality. He is a wine maker that has an obsession with wines from old vineyards, cared for with organic and sustainable awareness to achieve wines that can be classed as natural.

“A wine is a natural product, we cannot pour anything into the wine that isn’t necessary”. This simple phrase of Rui Alves, known as the godfather of the Portuguese natural wine movement, ended up constituting the whole oenological orientation of Joao Afonso.

The Cabecas do Reguengo wine dream started exclusively from centuries-old vineyards, in biological production mode to which he added biodynamic practices that have been his mantra since the beginning of the new century!

Hand-picked and a very precocious harvest

Vinification

Centennial Single Vineyard field blend (about 14 different grapes varieties). Natural fermentation in a cement lagar, part of the grapes were crushed and de-stemmed. Aged in old oak barrels for 20 months, without fining and filtering.

Tasting Notes

The brother of the white Equinocio. Aged in old oak barrels for 20 months giving it elegance and structure. Leather and earthy with a lush deep red fruit nose that make it intriguing and inviting. Soft rounded tannins make it a velvet sensation for your taste buds and with mouth watering acidity.

Try with venison and pork medallions with apples. Dishes that have elegance such as salmon or beef wellington and warm spices. Some cheeses with peppered notes, like aged cheddar, would be a fantastic pairing!

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
