James Halliday – This blend of Portuguese varieties has come together seamlessly and offers immediate drinking appeal. Heady with violets and lavender, blackcurrants and Szechuan pepper, blackstrap licorice and Mediterranean herbs, all adding to its youthful beauty. Fine tannins, raspberry-like acidity and complexity raise it way above ordinary. Jane Faulkner Published 13 August 2021
About This Wine
28% Touriga Naçional, 28% Tinta Cão, 17% Tinta Amarela, 11% Tinta Roriz, 11% Alvarelhão & 5% Sousão
Boysenberry and cardamom spices, mocha and charcuterie complexity. Bright blackcurrant fruit 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 and drives the long palate. Wonderfully complex and yet medium-bodied.
Fruit was sourced from 1990 New Territories planting of classic Portuguese grape varieties on a rocky terraced hillside.
The last fruit to be harvested from the vineyard. Hand picked and destemmed together in a ‘field blend’ style retaining as many whole berries as possible. The first working of the must is with the feet as in a traditional lagar in Portugal to extract tannins from both skins and seeds. Gentle pressing and maturation in old oak barrels for 10 months.
