CH by Chocapalha is an homage to the Swiss origins of the Tavares da Silva family. This wine is a pure expression of Touriga Nacional fermented in traditional granite lagares and aged in French oak barriques for 24 months before bottling.
The grapes, previously de-stemmed, go through a pre-fermenting maceration at low temperature. Fermentation takes place in lagares with successive pressings by machine for 12 days, not exceeding 25ºC. The aging and malolactic fermentation occurs in French oak barriques for 22 months, before bottling.
Deeply expressive, CH by Chocapalha displays bold, dark fruit aromas on the nose with subtle nuances of leather and violet. The structured palate is supported by firm tannins and enticing flavors of black currant and raspberry followed by a remarkable finish.
Pair with slow roasted brisket or braised lamb shanks.
