Winemaker's Notes:

The story of "Incógnito" When Hans and Carrie Jorgensen saw Cortes de Cima for the first time in 1988, they knew that this was the place they had been searching for. The rolling hills reminded Carrie of her native California, and the sunny Mediterranean climate was the contrast to chilly Denmark for which Hans had been longing! From the start, they did things differently from local custom, i.e. planting red wine varieties in a traditionally white wine area, introducing Syrah, (and at the time illegal!), using an untraditional 'New World' trellis system- just to name a few. When they bottled their first Syrah varietal in 1998, they were stuck on how to label it, since Syrah was still 'illegal' as a 'Vinho Regional' grape variety, so they called it 'Incógnito´.
