Winemaking & Viticulture

Grown in the stony, free-draining and warm soils of the Gimblett Gravels, hand-harvested fruit was de-stemmed and crushed. The fermentations were punched down frequently over the first few days until the residual sugar had reached the required level for fortification. Following fermentation and fortification, the wine was aged for two years in small oak barrels, true to the vintage port tradition.

The Wine

Typically a floral and fragrant wine with finesse and soft, supple tannins, Touriga Francesa is a particularly delicious wine in youth. True rewards will be gained from 5-15 years of well cellared bottle age.
