Whilst Tempranillo is now well known, Touriga Nacional may be less familiar. It's a lusty red variety that produces medium-bodied yet powerful wines with pungent fruit characteristics of fruit-mince or plum pudding. It blends well with red fruit, earth and cocoa of Tempranillo and may just be the variety and wine for our times. Expect a juicy, but not fruit-forward with a driving finish.
