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.
About this Wine
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.
