This selection of Touriga Nacional grapes is fermented in medium size stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature to be aged partially (30%) in new french oak barrels for 12 months.
This Touriga Nacional, made exclusively from grapes grown in a North-facing hillside of the quinta, expresses the fresh varietal character with floral and bergamot notes dominant over riper fruit flavours of blueberries. It is intense, deep and complex offering great pleasure to enjoy while young and vibrant, although it will certainly reward patient cellaring.
