Touriga Nacional

28,00 

100% Touriga Nacional 2015

Description

Ageing:

100% in French oak casks during 12 months.

Tasting Notes:

A dark violaceous, ruby colour with strong juicy scent of fresh blueberries, violets and cacao. Well-integrated oak notes bewitch nose and palate while this deeply concentrated red wine picks up the dark berries again on the palate, accompanied by light tobacco notes. This Touriga Nacional shows its power and concentration with the freshness and elegance coming through on a long finish.
