The Eusebio of the classic Portuguese varieties, Touriga Nacional is ideally suited to the maritime climate of McLaren Vale. A fast, lively red with a great right foot, this vinho do Vale is made for immediate enjoyment at all team events. We hope it kicks a goal for you.
16 Points –
Deep, slightly smudgy crimson. Gently aromatic with dark fruit and a hint of Earl Grey and a smoky, almost rubbery note, as if it were a touch reductive. Chewy tannins filled out with sweet and lightly peppery black fruit. Lovely freshness from start to end.
