Touriga Nacional 2018

Touriga Nacional 2018

This Portuguese grape (traditionally used to make port) is also now increasingly being used to make dry table wines. This low yielding variety produces very few bunches of small grapes. The resulting high skin to pulp ratio makes for well-structured, aromatic wines. Moon Curser is the only producer in British Columbia making a table wine from this grape variety and we're delighted to report that the heat and sun of our Osoyoos East Bench vineyards have provided the most welcoming growing environment for this intriguing variety.

The 2018 Touriga Nacional is a dry, medium-bodied red wine with a medium ruby colour. The nose is alluring, with highly aromatic notes of dark berries, black pepper, violets and rosemary. The palate rounds out the flavour profile with its notes of fresh sage and cigar box. This is an exceptionally harmonious wine that delivers a truly captivating tasting experience. Our 2018 Touriga Nacional will evolve nicely in bottle over the next five to seven years, although it is also quite approachable upon release.
