“TN” TOURIGA NACIONAL 2017 Vinho Regional Lisboa
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer QUINTA DE S. SEBASTIÃO)
NEW in Vintages. This lovely, intense and yet beautifully balanced, ripe, plum-cherry purée driven Touriga Nacional is an incredible find. Very deep intense purple colour, there’s loads of ripe fruit on the nose balanced by some hints of violets and mineral notes. Dry and nicely structured, the fruit is well integrated and perfectly ready-to-drink, although it can still age for another year of so. It originates in the coastal region adjacent to Lisbon and is vibrant and cedar-free having been carefully made in stainless steel. It’s 100% Touriga National with 14% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number LE1T118221 on the neck of the glass bottle. At only $17.95, it’s a versatile, crowd-pleasing bargain that should not be missed! CSPC 21738
