So smooth you immediately understand why Touriga is Portugal’s top-dog red grape. 


Like sucking on a soft salted caramel as you soak up the warm summer sunshine. It’s the low and slow-cooked brisket of red wine.

Tasting notes

It really only needs one word. DELICIOUS. Following on from the great pedigree of 2016 and 2018, this one promises a lot. It leads with blueberry, violet, star anise, baking spice. With a uniquely rounded tannin profile coming to the fore, this is unmistakably Touriga. Combining the depth and flavour of a much bigger wine, it slides down the throat with alarming ease.
