This classic Portuguese variety, Touriga Nacional is ideally suited to the maritime climate of McLaren Vale. A lively red, this vinho do vale is made for immediate enjoyment!

VINEYARD: Willunga foothills in the south of the McLaren Vale - 130m above sea level on deep alluvial stony clay loam.

Colour: Vibrant red

Aroma: Lifted red and blue fruits with a hint of Earl Grey.

Palate: Blue fruit flavours, with an Indian ink mid palate and an Earl Grey finish.

The fruit is crushed/destemed and fermented at temperatures ranging from 20- 25°C for 10 days on skins. The ferment is managed by a variety of techniques, including ‘aerative pump overs’ and ‘drain and returns’ which assist in extracting colour, flavour and tannin from the grapes. At the end of fermentation, it is drained/pressed, and transfered to 3 and 4 year old French oak barriques to undergo MLF. Post MLF, sulphur dioxide is added, and the wine matures sur lie for 10 months. 

Alc/Vol: 13.5%
