Tasting note information
The word ‘Nacional’ is reserved for treasures that fly the flag for Portugal. Touriga Nacional certainly does that. Ten years ago the Freitas family planted the grape on their acclaimed Fava vineyard. In 2015 and again in 2016 it produced a wine so special that it was bottled under the vineyard name. The 2015 and 2016 both won top gongs, making 62 Golds in 10 years for this fine family estate. Dating back to 1920, Casa Ermelinda Freitas is run by 4th generation winemaker Leonor Freitas, who has been awarded a ‘Comendadora’ for her services to Portuguese wine. Her daughter Joana follows in her footsteps. Aged in barrel, this rich red is packed with spicy berry, herb and mineral character. Open early and decant. It's great with roast meats.
