The 2019 has the same sensational perfume we have so enjoyed and reveled in over the last few vintages. Perfectly ripe fresh cherries, floral tones, the smallest kiss of tar and a palate that has that lifted, liquid silk-like feel and such energy. Each sip is utter joy. FYI - A Touriga Vai Nua means "Touriga goes naked" - it's unoaked, and glorious for it!
One of Portugal’s most renowned winemakers, António makes wines of intensity and class. No one of sound commercial mind would do what he and the other revolutionaries do, but it's this derring-do that makes them such magnetic personalities and their wine so winning, with qualities and flavours never known before, turning a staid post-war high-volume industry into the electric wine scene we are enjoying today
FROM THE PRESS
“'The aroma is glorious: sweet mulberry and blackberry but deeply floral too with that lovely note of bergamot and even a touch of peony that I rarely see on Touriga. It's even more aromatic the day after opening. The aroma is so lovely, I hesitate to put the wine in my mouth because I want to make the aromatic pleasure last. A class act with a long, dark-fruited finish' ”Julia Harding MW
