"28 Uvas" is a blend of 28 grapes from high-altitude (450m), interplanted terraced vineyards in the Val de Pinhão in the Douro. Similar to the Renegado field blend from Folias do Baco, 28 Uvas is the representation of a single place expressed by a multitude of grapes. Interplanting vineyards with different grapes was typical of the region. All grape varieties have their own unique strengths and weaknesses against the forces of nature, and interplanting 20+ varieties in a single vineyards was a way to avoid the pitfalls of mono-culture and a hedge against bad vintage conditions, pests, and fungus. An absolutely delicious, dark-fruited blend (that also contains 30% white grapes!).
