Clean, bright deep ruby colour with violet hue. Complex aromas of ripe fruit and floral notes combine with vanilla and toasty aromas from the wood aging new. Balanced wine, intense flavor and fruity, full-bodied and velvety structure. Aftertaste is long and persistent.
Touriga Nacional is a versatile grape, with its main characteristics being the small bundle, its low yield and jagged leaf. Its presence in the vines is intimidating, as it requires a constant care for its wild and rebelious character of growing disorderly. At Quinta de Cidrô, Touriga Nacional was adapted to a less habitual place, as it was mostly planted in low altitude vineyards and subject to high temperatures; the opposite of Quinta de Cidrô.
