Battle of Bosworth Touriga Nacional 2016

Certified Organic. Rare to see this grape bottled as a table wine, for many years it was a mainstay of our fortified production. Vinified in open fermenters and sees no oak.

Battle of Bosworth, Touriga Nacional, McLaren Vale, 2016

Floral nose with blackberry and bramble, plums, sweaty licorice and earthy leather and asphalt. Blocky, chewy tannins are cut with a sharp twinkly acid edge. Dour dark fruit persuasions, hit with a salty and yeasty tang. Medium length to finish out.

RRP: $28
Alc: 13.5%
Rating:  17.5/20
