Wine Region – Douro – Portugal
Mostly a continental climate with very cold winters and very hot summers.
Location of the vineyard– Douro (DOC)
Schist pre-Cambrian, and archaic, with some granitic spots.
Touriga Nacional, coming from our own vineyards, with different altitudes and expositions.
Manual grape picking, with good maturation criteria where the grapes are carefully selected. Cold pre-fermentation maceration, alcoholic fermentation with temperature control in stainless steel tanks. Long post-fermentation maceration with malolactic fermentation in the grapes. Vinified with all the necessary care to preserve the typicality of the grape varieties and brief stage in French oak to enhance its complexity.
To preserve intact the quality of this wine we do not stabilize by cold, it is a natural product subject to deposit with age.
Bright, intense ruby color, fresh but dense and velvety, a perfect harmony where the wild fruits of the Douro and the violets typical of the grape variety are mixed and some toasted notes. It is a sophisticated Touriga Nacional, very elegant, with ripe tannins, exuberant and with excellent persistence.
A pleasure for the senses.
Alcohol – 15 % vol.
Ideal for meats and hunted meats, cheeses, typical Portuguese food, Mediterranean.
