Always willing to try new blends, winemaker Peter Bright has put together this really attractive combination of grapes, the Touriga Nacional giving the same structure as Cabernet Sauvignon to the softer Merlot. The wine is ripe, fruity with attractive acidity and a layer of firmer tannins. Drink from 2017.
