James Halliday – "35/35/12/7/6/5% touriga nacional/tinta cão/tinta amarela/tinta roriz/alvarelhão/sousão, co-fermented and initially foot trod in a traditional lagar. This one-of-a-kind wine is beautifully perfumed with mountain herbs, lavender, rosemary and briary red fruits. Beautifully balanced and proportioned on the palate and immediately appealing with its gentle texture, refreshing acidity and superfine tannin structure." - Philip Rich (Halliday Wine Companion)
Huon Hooke – "Medium to deep, bright red/purple colour. The bouquet is very alluring with Beaujolais-like whole-bunch aromas, strongly stemmy but not green. The palate is medium-weight, softly textured and fine tannined. A whiff of reduction. The wine is deliciously fruity and soft, appetising, and packs a lot of flavour into its mild-mannered structure. A real charmer." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)
About This Wine
One of the Yarra's most unique wines, and one of its most delicious. Characterful, blend of 1990-planted Portuguese varieties of Touriga Naçional, Tinta Cão, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Alvarelhão and Sousao.
Made with skilled gentle hands and only old oak, with the aim being to retain all the spice and bright fruit that this style can deliver.
Lavender, plum and cardamom spices, mocha and boot polish. Quite a busy nose! Ripe plums and licorice spice of Touriga Naçional, the Tinta Cão brings bright and fragrant blue fruit energy. Tinta Roriz brings a savoury depth to the palate to compliment the Tinta Amarela’s floral and bay leaf herbal lift. To tie everything together the finesse of Alvarelhão and the acidity of the Sousão tightens, brightens and drives the long palate. Wonderfully complex and yet medium bodied.
