THE GOOD GUYS MUSE
Touriga Nacional is considered the greatest grape in one of the great wine styles of the world – namely vintage port. Although not fortified, the intrinsic qualities, intense complex fruit and big, tannic structure shine through.
Be awed and overwhelmed by this lesser known varietal.
Deep, vibrant red colour. Rich compelling nose of exotic spices, a little leather and loads of rich, wild berry fruit with a little smoky wet slate note adding to the complexity. Plenty of fine tannins throughout the palate compliments the complex, rich wild fruit. An attractive, long finish. Best between 2020-2030.
Picked in the early morning in small crates and delivered directly to the winery in the vineyard. Spontaneous natural yeast fermentation followed sorting, crushing and destemming. Time on skins was 9 days, with skins punched down 2 to 3 times a day. Single pressing in traditional basket press and malolactic fermentation in barrels. Time in barrel was 21 months. Bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered.
