This one is for the modern stylists. Nicely balanced. Quite Fruity but with good structure and has a bright freshness about it.
A very pleasant wine – either by itself or paired with Continental cuisine – pasta, cheeses, and crusty breads.
The game changed in the early 1990s when international investment arrived with the opportunity to modernize and update. New and old vintners alike found new markets to showcase their indigenous grapes.
The family of vintners has found that Touriga Nacional is the most flexible of grape varieties because it adapts so well to both dry and wet conditions. The vines are planted up and down the slope and patamares (terraces) with one or two rows of vines.
It is a lovely blend of 30% Tinta Roriz, 25% Touriga Franca, 35% Touriga Nacional and 10% Tinta Barroca
