2018 Touriga Nacional

2018 Touriga Nacional
Routon Vineyard, Fair Play

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet color. Aromas of earthy spice with hints of spring flowers and fresh berries including strawberry and red cherry. As this wine opens it delivers even more comforting, cedar-like spice notes and a slight bit of licorice. It is bold on the palate, full-bodied up front with sweet fruit flavors and well-balanced, lingering tannins on mid-palate, and wraps up with a smooth finish. Age worthy for 5+ years.

Winemaking Notes

We chose not to bleed any juice off of these grapes for rosé, as we often do, as Taylor wanted to treat the grapes as they were harvested to express the true terroir of the vineyard and the varietal characteristic of the Touriga Nacional grapes. As well, there was already sufficient tannin and pigment to create a full-bodied wine without any additional concentration needed. The wine fermented for 14 days during which we did punch downs three times per day for optimal extraction.

Food Pairing

Grilled meats and earthy winter stews will pair especially well with this wine, as will your favorite meatloaf. Shepherd’s pie or beef stroganoff are also great choices to pair.

Aging

Aged in neutral barrels for 20 months.
