Following the current fashion in Portugal for single-varietal wines, this is a rich, structured take on what has become the country's national grape. Powerful and with a dense structure, it retains some of the perfumed elegance that is one of Touriga Nacional's hallmarks. The tannins will age further and the fruit will come out more strongly. Drink from 2018.
