Produced from estate vineyards in the famed Douro wine growing region of Portugal, the Quinta Do Vallado 2015 Touriga Nacional is a beautifully balanced wine with great concentration. Touriga Nacional is indigenous to Portugal and grows predominantly in the Douro region. While it is used primarily as a blending grape in Port wines, it has recently been championed as a dry red wine with bold, lush flavors and the aging potential of a Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose, this wine offers aromas of wild red fruits and orange-citrus characters, as well as hints of violets and spice. The palate is elegant, fruity and round with silky tannins that linger on the refreshing finish. Pair the 2015 Touriga Nacional with light meat dishes, such as pork.
