The southern coastal region of Algarve is better known for beaches than for wine. This blend of Touriga Nacional and Syrah with long wood aging comes from the east of the region and shows great warmth as well as black plum fruit flavors. The juicy fruitiness is balanced by the youthful structure, showing the aging potential of the wine. Drink from 2017.
