Tasting Notes

We’re reliably informed by winemaker Antonio Macanita that ‘Vai Nua’ means ‘goes naked’ in Portuguese. This should not be taken as an instruction to spice up your dinner party (“For some reason no one even touched the main course...”), but rather as an indicator that this is one of the brightest, most quaffable Portuguese reds ever likely to pass your lips.

More Info

Touriga is known for producing big wines with lots of alcohol and tannin. Here it’s unoaked and as delicate as the dance of the Sugarplum Fairy, showing off the variety’s floral and hedgerow fruit notes.

FROM THE PRESS

“Oh my. I love this wine so much I want to drink the bottle now. Touriga Nacional not from the Douro, from the Alentejano. No oak! Mineral and dark and floral, like the cleanest of Rhône syrahs; violet-scented and fresh and thirst-quenching bright, with just a hint of the grape’s savage underbelly. I accidentally chilled it and - well, that works.”
Victoria Moore, The Telegraph on the 2017
