Touriga was originally planted in Australia over 60 years ago for fortified wine production. It is now showing its flair as a red table wine variety. Sourced from a well established vineyard in Langhorne Creek this shows the varieties floral and spice aromas with a beautifully soft and juicy palate.

The bunches were carefully destemmed to retain whole berries, and wild yeast-fermented before being pressed to used oak puncheons for 3 months. The hue is deep purple-red, the bouquet a complex, precise reflection of the dark spicy/briary flavours that follow, the tannins no issue whatsoever. Well worth a look for wine nerds at a fair price.

Winery Tasting Notes
A lifted aroma of crushed wild flowers, spice and plums.
Flavours of plum earth and spice. The palate is soft and approachable with fine, building tannins.
