Producer: Quinta Nova
Region: Duoro, Portugal
Grape Varieties: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cao
Overall Rating: ★★★★★
Pairing: I enjoyed this Touriga blend with the roast lamb platter from Au Jus. (proving that take-out food can provide a balanced meal). This wine was absolutely delicious! The medium body and tannins were perfect for the roast lamb, but the nicely balanced fruit and spice makes me want to sip this wine any time. Also, the Quinta Nova Winery winery looks like a fairyland and has a hotel, so I might need to start planning my next vacation…
Age: Youthful/Some Age/Aged
