J DE JOSÉ DE SOUSA 2017
J 2017 was produced from Grand Noir, Touriga Francesa and Touriga Nacional varieties, with the grapes being foot trodden in small “lagares” and fermented in 100 years old clay pots at the José de Sousa Winery in Reguengos de Monsaraz. After the 2011 harvest, the vintage of 2017 is considered a high quality harvest.
It was created in a moment of inspiration, far from the winery, in an area where sunlight, the surrounding aroma and peace were predominant. At the same time, it proves that Alentejo has wines with great potential. This wine puts together the elegance, softness and beauty.
