From the terraced vineyards in the hills of the Douro valley comes this delicious Touriga Nacional. Concentrated blackberry and blueberry aromas and a subtle spicy orange peel note. This wine has rich tannins and texture that fills your palate, yet its fruit is a central focal point giving the wine amazing balance.
Winemaker Jorge Gonçalves has partnered with South African winery Man Vintners (where he spends vintages in the Southern Hemisphere's autumn). This 2010 vintage is only the second year or this wines production. It is fermented and aged in stainless steel, so no oak is present in the wine. At $15-$17 this is a great value. Only 1,600 cases produced.
