Touriga Franca (grape variety) (en)

TOURIGA FRANCA (grape variety) The autochthonous Touriga Franca comes from northern Portugal and is mainly cultivated in the Douro Valley, where it is also the main variety. Since its origin is Portuguese and there is no connection to France, its original name Touriga Francesa was changed to Touriga Franca a few years ago in order to avoid misunderstandings.

The variety is very heat resistant, has medium sized grapes and berries and produces high yields.

Touriga Franca produces dark wines with intense fruit (blackberries), floral floral notes and a good balance between tannins and fruit. It is often used as a blending partner.
