The Shiraz brings an exotic floral fragrance coupled by a juicy expansive fruit palate and minimal tannin extraction. The Touriga Nacional being naturally high in tannins brings structure and spice to the blend.
Whole berry fermentation was encouraged with both varieties to encourage a fleshy fruit-full palate. Gentle hand-plunging twice daily for minimal tannin extraction. The individual components spent 9 months in old French oak barriques in the underground cellar before blending and bottling.
This wine has been made with the intention to be an early drinking style of wine; fragrant, vibrant and delicious in its youth. It will continue to evolve for some years under suitable cellaring conditions however this is not required. Please drink it and enjoy it!
