Touriga Wine Details
Price: $19.95 per bottle

Description: To create this red wine, we took the best grape from the vineyard. Due to a small quantity of grapes, the alcoholic fermentation was made in big bins. We aged the wine for six months in news and old barrels. The nose is very fruity with red fruits notes, raspberry and strawberry. The mouthfeel is very nice with spicy aroma of pepper, cloves. Balanced tannins give a very good structure that will be appreciate for all meals.

Varietal Definition
Touriga Nacional:
Found in California and South Africa, this fiercest and best of the port grapes has also been successfully transplanted to Australia for fortified wine production. The vine produces grapes with small, darkly-pigmented berries. Notorious for low yields, attributes like its intense rich fruit personality make this grape a highly-regarded and sought after varietal. In addition to being important in port production, it is also increasingly significant in the rich, red table wines of Portugal’s Dao and Douro valleys.
