V.T Churchill s T.Nacional 2014Vinhos do Douro
Grape variety: 100% Touriga Nacional. Vinification: Vinification takes place in small capacity stainless steel vats. The grapes are totally destemmed and then crushed. After a period of 4 days in cold maceration, the fermentation takes place under controlled temperature, proceeding with soft reassembly and prolonged maceration, thus obtaining a superior aromatic and polyphenolic extraction. Aging: 100% of this wine aged for 12 months in French oak barrels of 2nd and 3rd year. It was pasted and lightly filtered before being bottled. Tasting note: Closed violet color. On the nose, intense notes of fresh spices with hints of basil and rock rose. Velvety and very well balanced in the mouth, a combination of green pepper notes and nuances of resin, ending with an excellent natural acidity. Perfect accompaniment to red meat and roast dishes, such as roast beef, roasted duck and lamb in the oven. Ready to drink now, it will evolve well in the bottle for at least 3 to 5 years after the harvest year.
