Vintages Wine Panel: Winner of a Gold Medal at Sélections Mondiales des Vins Canada 2009. Ruby in colour, this wine blends 70% Touriga Nacional, 20% Trincadeira and 10% Aragónes (a local name for Tempranillo). Spiced plum and sandalwood are at the fore, with a collage of other spices (cinnamon, clove, white pepper) as well as an earthy character providing additional complexity. Dry, medium bodied with plenty of tannic structure. My note: Juicy and packed with flavour! Ripe, fleshy blackberries and blackcurrant. Supple and smooth. Fantastic for barbecues or pizza. Touriga Nacional Trincadeira Aragónes food pairings: herbed lamb chops, barbecues, pizza.
