Review - 2007 Quinta De Ventozelo Touriga Nacional
Purity…. Here we have 100% Touriga Nacional from 25 year old vines aging in 100% American oak barrels. They stay in the American oak for 8 months but are held at the winey for 6 months for aging before its released to the export market
The vineyard itself is on an elbow of the Douro River, where the grapes are harvested from both sides of the hill. This ensures plenty of afternoon and evening sun and good drainage. There are only 10,000 bottles made.
On the Pallet – dark strawberries and blackberries, baking spice, chalky tannins and a full mouth feel rounding out over a long finish
