2014 Desert Wind Touriga Nacional
A varietal hailing from Portugal, our Touriga Nacional was fermented in open-top bins; after primary fermentation, the free run and press wine were blended and aged in neutral oak barrels for 14 months to create a soft palate and maintain the lavish aromas. The resulting wine displays a complex nose of caramelized sugar, purple flowers and dried plums, complemented by a luxuriously soft palate of white tea and persimmons. This rich wine finishes with notes of leather and dried roses. Recommended drinking period: 2016-2025.
