Grapes: Touriga Nacional; Touriga Franca; Tinta Roriz
Very dark purple, a tawny in style, but masquerading as a ruby by sight. Good tawny style on the nose, though, fresh cracked walnuts and a hint of brown sugar. More fruit on the palate, dark plums, brown sugar and a fresh, zippy lemon-squirt of acidity that keeps its sweetness in balance.
Foodpairing: After-dinner sipping with cheese; sweet desserts
