Terra D Alter Touriga Nacional, Alentejo, Portugal, 2019
Grape: 100% Touriga Nacional with six months' ageing in French oak.
Since 1982, Australian oenologist, Peter Bright, has been working with the native vines of Portugal at the Terra d'Alter winery in the Alto Alentejo (some two hours' drive inland from Lisbon). It's a hot, Mediterranean climate and the Touriga Nacional grape (of Douro, Port fame) responds brilliantly to the intense sunshine experienced in the region. The fruit is sourced from three vineyards and undergoes a cool vinification to preserve the distinctive varietal fruit character.
Floral notes and ripe, red fruit, give notes of cherry, cassis, plum and vanilla spice. A long, savoury finish.
Previous vintages have won Gold medals at the International Wine Challenge and the China Wine Awards.
Recommended to pair with steak, veal, venison and Portuguese mountain cheeses.
