Quinta Dos Aciprestes | Grande Reserva | Talhao 14 |T.N|Red | 2015 | Doc Douro - Vivino Rating 4.4
Intro: Considered to be the star grape of Portugal, Touriga Nacional is one of the most planted grape varieties at Quinta dos Aciprestes. From all the individual parcels of Touriga Nacional at this Estate, number 14, which covers less than 2,5 acres, stands out for its low vigour, producing an immensely aromatic and concentrated red, which inspired us to do this outstanding limited edition.
Region: Douro (D.O.C)
Winery: Real Companhia Velha
Grapes: Touriga Nacional
Aging: 18 months in French Oak (70% old Oak, 30% new Oak)
Tasting Notes: A Touriga that primes for elegance and a classic style with very intense citric and red fruit notes combined with hints of vanilla from its ageing. On the palate, reveals itself fine and elegant, rich in fruit flavours and a powerful and concentrated structure. Finishes clean and persistent with a very lively acidity.
