PREMIUM TOURIGA NACIONAL
Argil-limestone, with rocky influence of granite and shale.
From a universe of 7.6 ha of five different blocks and about 25 thousand plants, through the combination of precision viticulture, specific analyses and berry tasting, 3,292 plants were selected to express the new concept of terroir. in this wine.
MR Premium Touriga Nacional 2012 had a stage of 24 months in barrels, followed by another 24 months in bottle. It transmits a more complex and fresh profile, which will allow for a positive evolution over the next 20 years. Young, austere, and complex in profile, it shows a disruptive taste given the variety used, due to the uniqueness of its minerality and freshness.
Light violet in colour, dense and dark. In the nose, it has a noble and intense profile. Notes of coffee, cane molasses, whipped cream, cedar, pine needles and light cigar. In the test, it is full, very fresh, voluminous and elegant. Great attack with long and fine tannins with a finale full of lively freshness. It also reveals notes of drier black plum and barley. To save, or to drink now.
