Quinta das Marias Touriga Nacional 2016
The extremely versatile Touriga-Nacional variety surprises us every year. We always try to choose the best of our three vines planted with Touriga. In 2016 the best grapes came from the vineyard named «Porto». The orientation and availability of water in the terroir helped to let the grapes ripen slowly and evenly, which gave rise to an excellent Touriga-Nacional with good acidity and magnificently integrated tannins.
The grapes are picked, picked and manually de-stemmed. Gentle fermentation takes place in Ganimede fermentation tanks. Malolactic fermentation and 12-month aging take place in 225 liter French oak barrels. 20% of the barrels are new, 80% used once.
