What am I: Quinta do Paço is a family property, with a total of twenty hectares, ten of which are dedicated to the vineyard and certified organic. This Quinta is home to Rodrigo Filipe and his Humus wines. Rodrigo is one of the pioneering and most experimental and exciting natural wine producers in Portugal. The winery is located in the demarcated region of Óbidos, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Serra dos Candeeiros mountains.
Humus Tinto Sem Sulfitos / No Sulfur red blend is a mixture of Syrah, Touriga Nacional, and Tinta Barroca. It is aged for 12 months in used barrels, and no sulfur is added to the wine. Unfined and unfiltered. The nose of this sulfite free wine is full of dried red fruits, some plum, and black cherry, as well as dried leaves and balsam notes. The palate is silky, rich, and with abundant natural acidity owing to the vineyards' proximity to the Atlantic ocean.
