Touriga Nacional (grape variety) (en)

TOURIGA NACIONAL (grape variety) The Touriga Nacional comes from northern Portugal and is probably the most appreciated red grape variety in Portugal. The autochthonous grape has its origin in Beiras/Dão where it is still the main variety today. In the Douro valley it is traditionally used for port wine production - today more and more for Douro wines. Following its strong increase in popularity, it is now cultivated throughout Portugal.

This variety loves warmth and is heat-resistant, has small berries and often carries less than 300g in traditional clones.

Touriga Nacional produces deep dark wines with plenty of velvety tannins and aromas of dark forest and berry fruits, violets, fir needles, bergamot (earl grey) and has a very high ripening potential.
