The decision to work with Touriga Nacional came naturally as it is a variety that thrives in hot and dry conditions. The vineyard was planted in 2007 on deep sandy granitic soils with a north westerly aspect. A hot slope, but it still enjoys cool shady mornings as a result of the steep valley. The Touriga fares exceptionally well with great balance in fruit and small bunches with small, concentrated berries. The grape has a natural high acidity and low pH which is perfect for these climatic conditions.
Deep, dark in colour with a purple rim. Rich floral aromas of violets and sweet oriental spice. Complex flavours of blueberry, plum and purpleand black forest fruits and a soft but succulent acidity. It is elegantly weighty with a velvetydensity and a defined underlying structure. A wine that reveals the identity of Touriga Nacional with uncompromised character.
