Battle of Bosworth Touriga Nacional 2019

  • Certified Organic
  • Vegan Suitable

Touriga is the anchor variety in traditional Portuguese ports, but here is a zippy medium weight style, with red fruit and black cherry on the palate. It finishes with great length too.

Portugal’s famed Touriga Nacional variety is showing great promise in some South Australian regions including McLaren Vale. Originally only grown in Australia for Fortified wines, it is now transitioning to medium-bodied fleshy, fruity smashable table wines, with bright cherry fruit at it’s core and some earthy chocolate notes.

Battle of Bosworth Touriga Nacional 2019

Winemaking : This is the sixth incarnation of this wonderful Portuguese variety. We grafted Touriga onto some 25 year old Shiraz vines and sold the first few vintages to other wine companies. Touriga Nacional is one of the key varieties used to make ports, but we have made a wonderful mid-weight floral dry red style. The wine is open fermented and spends no time in oak, to allow the lovely floral characters their full expression. The wine was bottled pretty early too.

Tasting Note : On the nose the Touriga has a hint of musk and red fruit and bergamot too. The wine is a zippy medium weight style, with red fruit and black cherry on the palate. It finishes with great length too. I see no reason to reinvent the wheel of food and wine matching either; 4 years ago Max Allen paired the 2015 TN with Portuguese chicken with cucumber, fennel and avocado salad. Still sounds great!
