Production

The Touriga Nacional grapes are sourced from the Quinta da Garrida vineyard at the foot of Serra da Estrela in Vila Nova de Tázem, in the Dão region. The soil here is sandy with some granite. After fermentation the wine spends 12 months in 300 litre French oak, and Russian oak barrels.

Tasting notes

Bright and inviting aromas of blackcurrant and bramble fruit and fresh herbs. What's so appealing about this wine is the well-judged, balanced, subtle tannins which are really well integrated with bright acidity and an appropriate seasoning of oak and this juicy, persistent, fresh fruit character. They've done something often missing in Portuguese red wines, and have produced a wine with good intensity, but one that's very fresh rather than showy.

Food match

Goes well with roasted meats and stews.
