Touriga Nacional 2014

Made from 100% Touriga Nacional grapes sourced from 30-year-old vineyards with schist soils. After a rigorous selection, the grapes ferment in a granite lagar with fott-treading. The wine is aged for 17 months in 50% new and 50% one-year-old French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

Very deep in color. This wine has great expression with elegant notes of black fruit and violet flowers well integrated with oak notes. On the palate, it displays intense and fresh flavors with perfect balance.
