Portugal's wines have really improved over the last ten years or so; forget those astringent, highly tannic wines of the past and welcome, particularly in this example, to a smooth velvety, fruity rich wine. Touriga Nacional, also seen in port, is a tannic grape and the tannins are evident in the dry finish of this wine however they will soften further over time.
Recommended with red meat dishes - beef, duck, lamb
"Churchill’s Estates Touriga Nacional is produced exclusively from Touriga Nacional grapes grown on our Douro Estates. We wanted to show off the indigenous grape variety from Portugal and the Douro valley. This wine has a deep black violet hue colour. On the nose, intense fresh spicy aromas with hints of wild basil and gum cistus. Velvety and well balanced on the palate, combining notes of green peppers and resinous notes with excellent natural acidity."
Elegant, velvety, fruity rich wine from Portugal’s Touriga Nacional grape; reminiscent of port with complex flavours including red cherries, berries, plums, herbs and sweet spices but much lighter in body
