Rarely grown in the US, Touriga Nacional is considered Portugal’s finest grape. Often found starring in fortified Port blends, Touriga is gaining popularity in dry reds from Duoro and Dão. Low-yielding Touriga produces high-tannin wines of exceptional flavor and structure.
Tasting Notes: Candied fruit and caramel on the nose hint at the depth contained within. Bold red fruit, earth, spice and wood lead the complex palate. The finish is long and satisfying.
Food Pairing: Red meat stews, Roasts and steaks, Teriyaki dishes, Duck.
